Changes to Online Medicaid Portal
The New Jersey Division of Medical Assistance and Health Services has implemented new changes to its online portal to apply for all Medicaid programs. As of January 1, 2020, anyone needing to apply for Medicaid should apply directly to NJ Family Care. This 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.
To utilize this portal, participants must be able to provide an email address at the time of application. It is estimated that the application can be completed in 10 minutes. Although participants can still visit our local offices to complete their Medicaid application, we encourage participants to utilize the new portal as it should result in a quicker processing of your case.

We Need Your Input on Mental Health and Addiction Services
Have you ever used any Morris County services for mental health, drug or alcohol addiction treatment and recovery? We need your input!
Every four years, each county in NJ prepares a County Comprehensive Plan (CCP) for Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Prevention, Treatment and Recovery Support Services. The purpose of the CCP is to identify needs and gaps within the service system in order to allocate resources and develop service priorities and programs to address those needs.
Fill out our survey to let us know where gaps in treatment are. The results of the survey will be compiled and summarized by county staff in the development of the CCP.
