If you do not have health insurance, you may be eligible for New Jersey Family Care (NJFC). This program is a federal and state-funded health insurance program created to help New Jersey's uninsured children and certain low-income parents and guardians to have affordable health coverage. It is not a welfare program. NJFC is for families who do not have available or affordable employer insurance and cannot afford to pay the high cost of private health insurance. For more information, call 1-800-701-0710, Mondays and Thursdays (8 a.m. 8 p.m.) or Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays (8 a.m. 5 p.m.) Multi-lingual operators available. New Jersey Family Care can be accessed online by clicking here.
