    • New Jersey Medicaid Agency - The Division of Medicaid Assistance and Health Services in the New Jersey Department of Human Services administers the state’s Medicaid program and NJ FamilyCare. This site provides descriptions of the major Medicaid programs in New Jersey, contact information, and links to the contract on-line between the Division and the HMOs in the state. The contract describes how the HMOs must deliver health care to Medicaid beneficiaries.

    • Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services - This is the agency in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services that administers the Medicare, Medicaid, and State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP) and regulates all laboratory testing of humans (except research) in the U.S. Their Web site provides information on the federal minimum standards for all these programs, access to the laws and regulations that govern them, answers to frequently asked questions, and contact information.

    • New Jersey Medicaid - This site is for Medicaid beneficiaries who are not enrolled in an HMO. It allows you to find a Medicaid fee-for-service provider (doctor, dentist, specialist, etc.) by county and area of practice. Once you select the county and the type of provider and click on "submit request," you will be given a list of appropriate Medicaid fee-for-service providers with their contact information. Note: Medicaid providers are under no obligation to accept all Medicaid patients into their practice. So make sure to ask if they are accepting new Medicaid patients when you call for an appointment.
