You and/or your children may qualify for Medicaid or the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) based on your income and family size. The good news is there's no limited enrollment period for these programs and you can apply and enroll all year round. Under the Affordable Care Act, New Jersey has expanded its Medicaid program (NJFamilyCare) to cover more people. Other good news...you can be working and still qualify. If you eligible, your coverage can begin immediately.
