Who is Eligible?
NJ FamilyCare now covers low income children, pregnant women, parents/caretaker relatives, single adults and adults without dependent children.
Children 18 and under will continue to be eligible with higher incomes up to 350% Federal Poverty Level (FPL). Parents still need to renew the coverage each year.
Parents/Caretaker Relatives with income up to 133% FPL must have tax dependent children in their household in order to be eligible under this category. This is a new NJ FamilyCare eligibility group. Dependent children in the household must be insured also.
Adults without dependent children, ages 19-64, and incomes up to 133% FPL may be eligible as part of the new NJ FamilyCare.
Eligibility is based on family size and income. Family size includes children under 21, adoptive and natural parents, or caretaker relatives and their spouses.
