NJ DHS Shares Resources to Support Medicaid Re-enrollment

May 31, 2023

The New Jersey Department of Human Services (DHS) has added more resources to its Stay Covered NJ toolkit, intended to help individuals and organizations assist NJ FamilyCare (Medicaid) beneficiaries in staying enrolled in the program through the Medicaid redetermination process.

New resources include printable handouts that notify beneficiaries of the importance of completing and returning the renewal packets sent to NJ FamilyCare enrollees subject to redetermination. Additionally, DHS has added posters and social media graphics providing information about Medicaid re-enrollment.

MAAC Meeting

The April meeting of the Medical Assistance Advisory Council (MAAC) featured a discussion of the unwinding process with stakeholder feedback. Watch the presentation, or read the slide deck.

MCO Partnerships

New Jersey's five managed care organizations (MCOs) are working with NJ FamilyCare/Medicaid to share updated member contact information, reach out to members who have not responded to NJ FamilyCare mail, and help members avoid disenrollment. At the beginning of each month, MCOs will send postcards to members who are scheduled to receive their renewal mail that month.

Learn more from the videos about the return to regular renewals, for which links are provided below.

Transition to other Coverage

People who no longer qualify for NJ FamilyCare may be able to get health coverage through GetCoveredNJ, the State's official health insurance marketplace. GetCoveredNJ offers immediate eligibility results and says if people can get help lowering the cost of their monthly premiums. After reviewing their results, people who are eligible for Marketplace coverage can compare options and enroll in a Marketplace plan that best meets their needs.
