The NJ FamilyCare/Medicaid redetermination applications will be mailed during a 12 month period, with 1/12th of the applications mailed each month between April 2023 and March 2024.  Individuals will have 60 days to complete the renewal and mail it back, or they can complete the form online.

Medicaid Redetermination Applications Required

The State Health Insurance Assistance Program & NJ Department of Human Services has posted the following: 

During the COVID pandemic, no one was terminated from Medicaid/ NJ FamilyCare, even if you were no longer financially eligible. The automatic continuation of Medicaid coverage, which has been in effect for three years, is ending in May, and Medicaid redetermination applications will be required. Even if your income or family size hasn’t changed, all NJ FamilyCare/Medicaid enrollees are required to have a “redetermination” of Medicaid eligibility by completing a written renewal application that will be mailed starting in April 2023. Those who are no longer eligible, may be terminated starting 5/31/2023.

Individuals currently enrolled in Medicaid should note the following:

  • Make sure NJ FamilyCare/Medicaid has your correct mailing address on file, especially if you have moved within the last 3 years.
  • Look for mail from the NJ Department of Human Services, or from your county welfare board or county board of social services.
  • Once you have received the renewal application, complete it within 60 days and return it in the mail.
