If you have dependent children, your family may be eligible for health benefits -through a program called Medicaid - based on your income and situation. Medicaid is a separate program from WFNJ, but when you apply for WFNJ benefits, your caseworker will also determine your Medicaid eligibility. As your income changes, so will your Medicaid eligibility.
For more information, call the Medicaid Hotline toll-free: 1-800-356-1561.
Note: If you are a single adult or a couple without dependent children receiving WFNJ General Assistance (GA), you may also be eligible for
medical coverage while you are receiving cash assistance.
