Health Care
Affordable Care Act 2019 Open Enrollment November 1-December 15

If you do not have health care coverage through NJ FamilyCare, Medicare, or your employer, you may qualify for a subsidized insurance policy. The Affordable Care Act’s 2019 open enrollment period runs through December 15. You can find information about plan options and financial assistance at or contact one of the following community organizations for help enrolling:

  • The Center for Family Services (1-877-922-2377)
  • The Family Resource Network (1-800-355-0271)
  • The Oranges ACA Navigator Project (1-973-500-6031)
  • Fulfill Monmouth & Ocean (1-732-918-2600 or 1-732-731-1400)
  • Urban League of Hudson County (1-201-451-8888, ext. 217) 

NOTE: The federal tax penalty for not having health insurance coverage has been repealed for 2019. New Jersey has imposed a similar state tax penalty, however, for not having coverage in 2019. So, this open enrollment period may be your last chance to avoid this tax penalty on your 2019 NJ income tax return.​​​​​​
