MANDATORY HEALTH INSURANCE

New Jersey requires all children to have medical insurance. If you do not have medical insurance or your child is not covered by your own insurance, the State has created two programs to help you.

NYFamilyCare
Click here to visit the State website to see if your family qualifies for this low cost or no cost health insurance program. 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.

 

NJFamilyCare Advantage
If your children are without health insurance and your family does not qualify for NJ FamilyCare, the NJ FamilyCare Advantage program offered through Horizon NJ Health can help. Click here for more information on this low-cost plan.
