NJ FamilyCare/MedicaidNew Jersey Care/NJFamily Care/Medically Needy/Aged and Disabled

Medical benefits for low income aged and persons with disabilities.

This service provides medical benefits to certain New Jersey residents who have incomes that are too high to qualify for the regular Medicaid program but meet the income and asset limits of the program. The following groups of individuals may be eligible: Aged 65 years or older, blind or disabled, pregnant, needy children under the age of 12.

This office also assists persons applying for the Qualified Medicare Beneficiary (QMB) program. To qualify as a QMB, the same Jersey Care requirements apply and you must be receiving Medicare Parts A and B. If you qualify as a QMB, certain costs not covered by Medicare such as deductibles and certain coinsurance for services rendered by Medicaid-participating providers are covered by the Medicaid Program. If you are eligible, the State will also pay for your monthly Medicare Part B premium.
