About the Sentinel Project

The Affordable Care Act expanded access to individual and small group health insurance that includes the promise of access to a broad range of health care services. Health plans are required to provide meaningful access to primary and specialty care, behavioral health services, and other needed treatment.
Because New Jersey lacks both a state health insurance exchange and a federally-funded state consumer assistance program, consumers may not know where to turn if their plans deny them coverage of the essential health benefits to which they are entitled by law. The Sentinel Project, run by Seton Hall Law School and the New Jersey Public Interest Law Center, is dedicated to assuring that consumers gain access to the services required by the new law.Back to Article List
