In conjunction with New Jersey Medicaid and NJ Family Care
An LRRC staff member is based at the Center for Health Education Medicine and Dentistry, CHEMED (local Community Health Center) to assist uninsured children and their families by evaluating their eligibility for NJ Medicaid (Family-Care). Most children can receive temporary Medicaid coverage for up to on full month from the date of the first doctor appointment. Parents may then submit the necessary paperwork (proof of income etc.) to get permanent Medicaid coverage.
