BLOOMFIELD, NJ – As the federal government ends the continuous Medicaid coverage requirement put in place during the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency that ensured no one was terminated from Medicaid/ NJ FamilyCare, even if no longer financially eligible, the Township of Bloomfield Department of Health & Human Services is notifying Medicaid recipients that they will need to have their eligibility redetermined. This means that all members enrolled in an NJ FamilyCare program will be reviewed to see if they still qualify for coverage. As part of this review, many members will receive mail from the State of New Jersey or their County Board of Social Services. Members will have to provide or confirm additional information so NJ FamilyCare/Medicaid can decide whether they still qualify for healthcare coverage.
“We have been working on several fronts to prepare for this and to ensure the transition is as seamless as possible. Our priority right now is to promote awareness and to make sure Bloomfield residents understand the timeline and the steps that need to be taken to redetermine eligibility,” said Bloomfield Mayor Michael Venezia.
Bloomfield’s Department of Human Services wants Medicaid recipients in the Township to know about the change in federal requirements and to look for renewal packets or requests for information in the mail in the weeks ahead. Those who no longer qualify for NJ FamilyCare may be able to get health coverage through GetCoveredNJ, the State’s official health insurance marketplace. GetCoveredNJ offers immediate eligibility results and says if people can get help lowering the cost of their monthly premiums. After reviewing their results, people who are eligible for Marketplace coverage can compare options and enroll in a Marketplace plan that best meets their needs.
Individuals currently enrolled in Medicaid should note the following:
