2. Medicaid terminations are prohibited during the coronavirus emergency
Federal legislation passed on March 18, 2020 prevents all Medicaid terminations during the course of the public health emergency caused by COVID-19. In New Jersey, all Medicaid programs are considered part of NJ FamilyCare. Individuals who were enrolled in Medicaid as of March 18, 2020, must continue to receive those benefits (unless they move out of state or voluntarily request termination) until the last day of the month when this public health emergency is officially ended.
If you become aware of anyone whose Medicaid benefits were terminated during this period, please contact Legal Services of New Jersey (LSNJ) for help at 1-888-576-5529 or
