May 14, 2020

Medicaid provides health benefits to 72 million Americans who cannot afford health care. The NJ Family Care Program includes Medicaid, Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) and Affordable Care Act (ACA) and provides health care to 1.7 million lower-income adults and children — among them senior citizens in nursing homes and others who receive both Medicare and Medicaid benefits (and are known as dual-eligible).
