Officials to Help New Jerseyans Obtain Health Care Coverage

Last Edited:
NEW JERSEY -

Enrollment for the Affordable Care Act (ACA) opens on Thursday, November 1st, and state officials are working to help enroll residents into the health coverage before time runs out.

Officials with the New Jersey Department of Human Services are providing $375,000 in funding and support to five community organizations that will help enroll New Jersey residents in health coverage.

The five organizations, which includes the Center for Family Services of Camden, will help identify uninsured residents and provide them with application assistance for the New Jersey Family Care program and, for those not eligible for the program, for the ACA's federal marketplace.

The initiative is part of Governor Phil Murphy's efforts to raise awareness and enroll more New Jerseyans during the ACA's open enrollment period, which President Trump reduced from three months to six weeks.

Open enrollment runs from Thursday, November 1st, to Saturday, December 15th.
