CoverNJ is a collaborative project of Affordable Care Act Outreach and Enrollment Groups across the state, working to connect more New Jerseyans to health insurance options now available under the ACA.
Not yet covered? Fill out an application today to find out what you qualify for. Four out of five New Jerseyans who applied for coverage in 2014 received financial assistance to help with the cost of their health insurance premium. You could too. Find out more about financial assistance you might be able to receive. Don’t delay. If you chose not to enroll you may have to wait until the next open enrollment period (November 2015) to apply and may have to pay a penalty of up to $325 or 2% of your income whichever is greater.
Already enrolled? If you purchased a plan on the Marketplace for 2014, you can chose to keep your coverage. The plan and tax credit you received last year will be automatically renewed for 2015. Had a change income or family size? Want to change plans? Repply for a tax credit and change your plan during open enrollment. Learn more at Healthcare.gov.
You may qualify for free or low-cost care through Medicaid, based on income and family size. New Jersey has expanded Medicaid to cover more people. You can apply for and enroll in Medicaid or the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) any time of year, since there is no limited enrollment period. If you qualify, your coverage can begin immediately. If you have Medicaid coverage, you’re considered covered under the health care law and don’t have to buy a Marketplace plan. Details (click here).
The Open Enrollment period for 2015 coverage is November 15, 2014 to February 15, 2015. If you haven't enrolled in coverage by then, you generally can't buy Marketplace health coverage for 2015 until the next Open Enrollment period for coverage the following year.
