NJ FamilyCare is not a welfare program, but rather the State of New Jersey’s way of providing affordable health coverage for kids and certain low-income parents/guardians.
Due to New Jersey’s current budget situation, cuts to the NJ FamilyCare program are being made as of March 1, 2010 which affects parents/guardians coverage only. For details, please see Question and Answer – Changes March 1, 2010.
- Immigrant parents/guardians otherwise eligible for NJ FamilyCare who did not have legal permanent residence status for at least five years can no longer be enrolled in NJ FamilyCare.
- Parents/caretakers requesting NJ FamilyCare coverage for themselves face a much lower income eligibility level than previously. For details, please see the Who is Covered page and Income Eligibility and Cost.
- Currently enrolled parents/guardians who are disenrolled for failure to pay the premiums due or do not renew their coverage may not be able to re-enroll. It is important to pay premiums in full and on time and to submit renewal applications when expected.
If you or your children are New Jersey residents and you need more information on this program, please read through the pages of this website and see just how to become a part of NJ FamilyCare.
NOTE: CHANGES EFFECTIVE MARCH 1, 2010
