Sorting through the new insurance options under the Affordable Care Act can be overwhelming, but help is on the way.
NJ Hospital Association has hired a team of U.S. veterans who have been trained in a new mission: helping New Jersey residents explore their health insurance options. These veterans have been trained as Certified Application Counselors, prepared to assist individuals in comparing and signing up for new health insurance plans through the Health Insurance Marketplace, Medicaid and NJ Family Care.
Rotations of CACs will be available to assist individuals on a drop-in basis (no appointments).
In Monmouth County, assistance will be available every Tuesday from 12:30 - 4 pm at CentraState Medical Center, 901 West Main Street, Freehold, NJ 07728
You will have access to Education, Enrollment Assistance, Spanish language assistance.
For more info: N.J. Townes, 609-480-8834, email@example.com (Monmouth team lead).

Some families and individuals will qualify for tax credits or subsidies that will make their coverage more affordable. To help the CACs better explore your options with you, come prepared with information such as: • Social Security numbers (or document numbers for legal immigrants) • Birthdates • Pay stubs, W-2 forms or “Wage and Tax Statements” • Policy numbers for any current health insurance • Information about any health insurance available through your job, if you are currently employed.
This service is made available through a special initiative from the New Jersey Hospital Association and New Jersey Health Initiatives, with financial support provided by a grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. The CACs will be working in hospitals and other sites across the state. Visit www.njha.com/reform/gethelp to learn more about this program and see the CACs’ full schedule throughout NJ.
