Using Your Benefits.
NJ FamilyCare offers the benefits of quality, low-cost health insurance and peace of mind knowing that you don't have to worry about unexpected
healthcare bills. As members of NJ FamilyCare you and/or your family are eligible for a wide range of services, as described on the
"What does it cover?" page.
The card below, the permanent Health Benefits Identification card (HBID), is what you use to access the Fee for
Service benefits that are part of every NJ FamilyCare health benefit package. This HBID card is activated or deactivated at the State depending on your eligibility.
New eligibility does not necessarily mean a new card is being mailed to you. If you were enrolled in NJ FamilyCare within the past two years, a new card is not generally mailed out.
The old card will be reactivated by the State.
Fee for Service means it is a benefit not covered by the Health Plan or HMO.
The other five cards below come from the Managed Care Organization or the Health Plan/HMO that you are enrolled in. A member must use that specific card to access the services
that are provided by their Health Plan such as doctor, hospitalization, dental, prescriptions, etc.
It is important that you bring both cards any time you see your provider.
The provider will know the benefit package and how to bill for the services when both cards are presented.
If you need a new HBID Card because it was lost or stolen contact 1-877-414-9251.
If you have any questions about your specific benefits, please call your Health Plan.
