Virtually every child in Camden and across the state of New Jersey ages 0 – 18 can get free or low-cost government health insurance – regardless of immigration status. Trusted community organizations can help parents and caregivers apply for free and in any language.

No family makes too little or too much money to qualify! Children who live in households with income up to 355% of the federal poverty level qualify for NJ FamilyCare (Medicaid) – which is up to $88,000 a year for a family of three. Most children who live in households with income above 355% of the federal poverty level qualify for GetCoveredNJ (the Marketplace/Affordable Care Act). If a parent applies for NJ FamilyCare and makes too much money to qualify, the application is automatically sent to GetCoveredNJ and vice versa.

As one of New Jersey’s four Regional Health Hubs, the Camden Coalition is working with the NJ Department of Human Services to organize outreach related to its Cover All Kids initiative in Camden.

We’ve brought together a work group — comprised of a cross-section of community organizations such as schools, faith-based organizations, non-profit and county-run social service organizations, hospital systems, organizations that work with immigrants, and Medicaid plans — to raise awareness about the availability of government child health insurance, connect parents to help to apply, and get every child in the City of Camden health insurance.

Help us spread the word

We’ve created tools for individuals and organizations who work with children and parents/caregivers to conduct outreach, educate community members, and spread the word about Cover All Kids.

Click here for social media language and graphics, and scroll down for flyers and postcards you can download and print and distribute in multiple languages.

Check back to this page soon— we will be adding new resources, including sample text messages, a child health insurance income eligibility chart, frequently asked questions, and more!

If you’d like to participate in the Cover All Kids work group, all are welcome. Contact Colleen McCauley, Project Director, at [email protected] or 856-258-7941.

This outreach and enrollment campaign is funded by a grant from the New Jersey Division of Medical Assistance and Health Services (DMAHS)
