New Jersey Family Care: Federal Government Agency and New Jersey Agency Together Extend Time for Families to File Appeals

HNWMedicaid Eligibility and Asset Protection Planning

New Jersey Family CareFor many New Jersey families, COVID-19 has made it impossible for them to keep their health insurance.  That means more people and families than ever need New Jersey Family Care.

Some of the New Jersey Family Care programs are designed specifically for children, the elderly, pregnant women, and individuals with disabilities.  When you or a loved one who is in one of those four categories are denied your application for New Jersey Family Care, it can be devastating – especially since the letter your family receives says the deadline to appeal the decision is only twenty (20) calendar days.

That short deadline is even more difficult to meet with today’s slow mail.

Thankfully, a government agency called the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid has stepped in, and together with New Jersey’s Division of Human Services, has extended those deadlines substantially, by up to an additional 120 days.

If you or a loved one got a letter telling you that your application for New Jersey Family Care was denied, and you received it within the last four months, call Fredrick P. Niemann, Esq. toll-free at (855) 376-5291 or email him at to schedule a consultation.  Please ask us about our video conferencing or telephone consultations if you are unable to come to our office.
