New Jersey to use tax forms to enroll uninsured kids
AP/Philadelphia Inquirer, April 15, 2009
Starting this year, New Jersey tax filers are being asked if they have uninsured children, and those who do are being directly sent a so-called "express" state child insurance application. The applications are for the state's FamilyCare program, which covers New Jersey children who fall in the gap between Medicaid and private insurance. The program provides free or low-cost medical exams, shots, hospitalization, lab tests, X-rays, prescription drugs, and dental and mental health services. It serves nearly 132,000 children and 128,000 adults.
