NJ FamilyCare - Renewing and Staying Insured
NJ FamilyCare Renewal Information
If your family is enrolled in NJ FamilyCare, it is important that you renew your health insurance coverage each year so that it continues without interruption.
How do I know it’s time to renew my family's NJ FamilyCare health insurance?
Before your family's coverage ends, NJ FamilyCare will send you a renewal packet. You must renew your NJ FamilyCare insurance on or before the renewal date (at least 30 days before your last day of coverage).
If you do not receive a renewal packet and it is close to a year since you signed up for NJ FamilyCare or last renewed your benefits, please Contact Us.

For some Healthfirst NJ plans, you will need to make a monthly payment (or “premium”) to stay insured. It’s important to make all payments on time. To make a payment, please contact the the NJ State Health Benefits Coordinator (HBC) at 1-800-701-0710. You can also make payments by contacting your County Welfare Agency.
