New Cover All Kids

NJ FamilyCare/Medicaid provides health care coverage for pregnant women who live in New Jersey and who are either U.S. Citizens or lawfully present immigrants. To qualify for NJ FamilyCare, the total family income must be at or below 205% of the Federal Poverty Level. For a family of 4, that is $5,330 a month (2024 guidelines).

Pregnant women are covered during pregnancy and for 12 months after delivery or the date the pregnancy ends. They will stay covered even if the family’s income changes during that time.

Children born to mothers with NJ FamilyCare coverage can also get NJ FamilyCare coverage up to their first birthday, even if the family’s income changes. Mothers should call NJ FamilyCare to report the birth of the baby.

Pregnant women who do not qualify for NJ FamilyCare

There are other health care coverage programs for pregnant women who do not qualify for NJ FamilyCare:
