MORRIS COUNTY, NJ -- Anyone in Morris County who utilizes Medicaid coverage, can now use the online portal to apply for all Medicaid programs. 

As of Jan. 1, 2020, anyone who requires Medicaid assistance, can apply online directly to NJ Family Care. The new portal will allow participants to complete their Medicaid application online and upload required documents via smartphone, tablet or PC. Participants can easily check on the status of their Medicaid application online as well as receive electronic notifications, said government officials.

The application process is estimated to take 10 minutes to complete. All participants will need to provide an email address to complete the application, they said.

Participants can still visit the Morris County government offices in Morris Township or Dover to fill out Medicaid applications, although residents are encouraged to utilize the new portal, which should provide quicker processing of applications and cases.

Medicaid provides health coverage to many county residents, including eligible low-income adults, children, pregnant women, elderly adults and people with disabilities. The program is funded jointly by states and the federal government.
