The New Jersey Department of Children and Families is pleased to support “Cover All Kids,” an expansion of NJ FamilyCare health care coverage to all of New Jersey’s children, regardless of their immigration status.
Children who are not legally in the United States, who live in New Jersey, and whose family income qualifies became eligible to receive NJ FamilyCare health care coverage in January.
NJ FamilyCare provides a variety of health services, such as doctor/specialist visits, mental health, vision, dental, vaccinations and a number of other benefits to keep children healthy.
With NJ FamilyCare, income-eligible children under 19 can receive:
- Primary and specialty care, including checkups and other visits.
- Hospitalization (both inpatient and outpatient).
- Lab tests/X-rays.
- Dental services.
- Preventive screenings.
- Mental health care.
- Substance use testing and treatment.
- Vision services.
- Hearing services.
- Lead screening.
- Family planning.
- Other medically necessary services.

On the website, you’ll find a number of resources, including FAQs, printable flyers (like the ones at right, available in English and Spanish) and shareable social media graphics, which can be shared with parents and school staff as needed.
The goal is to ensure residents in every part of New Jersey are familiar with Cover All Kids and the essential benefits it provides for their children.
