Welcome to the NJ FamilyCare website.

NJ FamilyCare - New Jersey's publicly funded health insurance program - includes CHIP, Medicaid and Medicaid expansion populations. That means qualified NJ residents of any age may be eligible for free or low cost health insurance that covers doctor visits, prescriptions, vision, dental care, mental health and substance use services and even hospitalization.

If you are a NJ resident and you need more information on this program, please read through the pages of this website and see how to become a member of NJ FamilyCare.

Individuals ineligible for NJ FamilyCare can find information on other insurance affordability programs at www.healthcare.gov.

1095-B Health Coverage Forms Were Mailed by January 31, 2017

Public health programs such as NJ FamilyCare are required to provide you with documentation of the health coverage you had for each month during the year. This information is reported on line 61 of the Form 1040 tax return and is self-attested. The 1095-B form is your proof should the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) outreach you and ask for verification of your health coverage. The 1095-B form is not required to be submitted with your tax return and should only be supplied upon the written request of the IRS. As directed by an Executive Order on January 20, 2017, the IRS will accept electronic or paper income tax returns that do not indicate whether the taxpayer has had health insurance during the tax year 2016.

The 1095-B forms were scheduled to be mailed by January 31, 2017. You do not need to take any action at this time. Form 1095-B will indicate the names of all family members who were covered by NJ FamilyCare. A copy of this form will also be reported to the IRS.

For more information about 1095-B Health Coverage Forms, visit www.irs.gov/form1095b.
