NJ FamilyCare Information - Mandated Health Coverage for all Students age 18 and under
Recently signed legislation now mandates health insurance for all children age 18 and under. The requirement can be met through (1) health insurance provided by your employer, (2) a health insurance policy you purchase directly, or (3)through NJ FamilyCare, which provides free or low cost insurance for children and their parents. Enrollment in school insurance programs ONLY does NOT satisy this mandate.
Information on NJ FamilyCare and eligibility is available through the school nurse in each of our school buildings. Uninsured families may contact the school nurse to learn more about the application process for NJ Family Care. All information will be kept strictly confidential.
