NJ Health Insurance Mandate

New Jersey Health Insurance Market Preservation Act

Beginning January 1, 2019, New Jersey will require its residents to maintain health insurance.

The law requires you and your family to have minimum essential health coverage throughout 2019 and beyond, unless you qualify for an exemption.

Failure to have health coverage or qualify for an exemption will result in a Shared Responsibility Payment when you file your 2019 New Jersey Income Tax return.

If you are not required to file a 2019 New Jersey Income Tax return – you are exempt from this mandate.

Please note: The open enrollment period for 2019 ended on December 15, 2018.
