Healthcare Benefits for Working Poor

Stop discriminating against working poor by denying healthcare benefits based on the state's faulty eligibility formula.

Why is this important?

NJ Family Care has been given a directive to ignore expenses when looking at tax returns that are used to determine eligibity for services. As such, any business owner who is not earning enough after expenses to support their family is also disqualified for benefits because of the formula being used.
