Health Care Advocacy

Health Care Advocacy

The Arc of New Jersey's Health Care Advocacy Program promotes quality health care for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) throughout New Jersey.

IMPORTANT ALERT REGARDING MEDICAID UNWINDING: Everyone with IDD who has DDD services must have NJ FamilyCare/Medicaid. People with IDD who receive NJ FamilyCare/Medicaid are required to have a "redetermination" of their Medicaid eligibility. The exception to this requirement is people who receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI). Click here to see up-to-date information on the Medicaid redetermination process.
