Getting Started

NJ FamilyCare (Medicaid) can provide free or low cost health insurance for New Jersey residents who are citizens of the United States or Qualified Immigrants.

Before you apply, we have a few questions to help direct you to the program that is right for you.

  1. Are you age 65 or older?
  2. Do you already have Medicare? Medicare is not NJ FamilyCare (Medicaid). You would have a card like the one below. Click on the image to enlarge.

  3. Has the Social Security Administration or the Division of Medical Assistance and Health Services (DMAHS) determined you disabled?
  4. Are you a resident of New Jersey?
