One of the lesser-known factors contributing to the rapid increase in the cost of health care is the shrinking number of primary care physicians (PCPs) available relative to the size of the population. Similar to most states, New Jersey faces a severe primary care shortage. The Robert Graham Center estimates to maintain current rates of primary care utilization, New Jersey will need “an additional 1,116 primary care physicians by 2030, a 17 percent increase compared to the state’s current (as of 2010) 6,236 PCP workforce.”
