Who is Eligible?
Children 18 and younger may apply for the program, as well as certain low-income parents/guardians.
The income eligibility level for children’s coverage is 350% of the federal poverty level. For example, children in a family of four with a monthly income of up to $6,519 could be eligible for coverage. The program is also accepting applications from parents/guardians with work income up to 133% of the federal poverty level — for instance, a family of four making up to $2,478 per month.
Eligibility is based on family size and monthly income. Family size includes children under 21, adoptive and natural parents and their spouses. If a child is living in a household with a grandparent, guardian, or caretaker, that person is not included in the family size, and their income is not taken into consideration when calculating eligibility for the NJ FamilyCare program, unless the guardian is also requesting coverage.
