The Division of Medical Assistance and Health Services is pleased to present the NJ FamilyCare Data Dashboards. The objective of these web-based dashboards is to enable greater transparency to the Medicaid program. Users can gain more timely and in-depth knowledge of key demographic and performance metrics. Assistance and guidance for the development of the dashboards was received under the umbrella of the CMS Data Analytics Medicaid Innovation Accelerator Program.
Please scroll through the following descriptions to learn more about the available dashboards.
These dashboards enable a deeper dive for a selected month or months into the demographics of the NJ FamilyCare population. Information displayed includes key demographic information including gender, age, county of residence, dual status, and eligibility type. Data is available from January 2014 forward.
NJ FamilyCare is New Jersey's state and federally funded Medicaid program for eligible adults and children. Most health services are coordinated by one of five managed care organizations, or regional PACE providers, contracted with the Division of Medical Assistance and Health Services. NJ FamilyCare health plans include Aetna Better Health of New Jersey, Amerigroup New Jersey, Horizon NJ Health, UnitedHealthcare Community Plan, and WellCare.
Long-Term Care (LTC) is a term that is used to describe an array of services that are provided to people with prolonged illnesses, disabilities or cognitive disorders. LTC services include health, medical, personal care, and social services. Managed Long Term Services and Supports (MLTSS) is a holistic method of providing long term care services which is governed by a managed care organization. Enrollees have greater access to an array of home and community-based services so that a nursing home is not their only long term care option. NJ FamilyCare health plans coordinate all services for recipients enrolled in the MLTSS program.
