your family.

Benefits Overview


NJ FamilyCare C and D members have copays (usually $5 to $10 per visit or $10 to $35 for emergency room visit) for certain services. The amount of the copay is listed on your member ID card. NJ FamilyCare D members must also make a monthly premium payment to the state based on their monthly income. Your NJ FamilyCare Health Benefits Coordinator can tell you if you owe a monthly premium payment.

When NJ FamilyCare C and D members reach their family cost‐share limit, they will no longer have a copay. See our member handbook for more details.

Eskimos and Native American Indians under the age of 19 don’t have premium payments or copays.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

We have the answers to your questions about your NJ FamilyCare benefits and services.

Dental Benefits

Oral exams and having your child’s teeth cleaned are at no cost to you. With your Amerigroup Community Care benefits, your child gets exams and cleanings twice a year.

When should I begin taking my child to the dentist regularly?

Healthy habits start early. We recommend the following schedule to help keep your child’s teeth healthy:

  • Schedule your first dental visit when your child is between 6 months to a year old or soon after the eruption of the first tooth.
  • Your child should see his or her dentist at least twice a year for oral exams and cleanings and complete all recommended treatment.

Amerigroup is a culturally diverse company. We welcome all eligible individuals into our health care programs, regardless of health status. If you wish to submit a concern or complaint to the Amerigroup Beneficiary Rights Ombudsman, please call 1-877-440-4085 (TTY: 711).
