If you need treatment before you have coverage...

The most important thing is to see a provider (doctor). Provider staff will help you figure out how to pay your medical bills. Many hospitals, outpatient clinics, Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHC), family planning centers, behavioral health providers, and substance use disorder treatment providers can help you apply for the Presumptive Eligibility (PE) program. PE can give you health care coverage for a short time only. When filling out the PE application, you can also apply for NJ FamilyCare by answering just a few extra questions. Applying for NJ FamilyCare will help you and your family get health care coverage for a longer time.
