FamilyCare C and D
Copayments for NJ FamilyCare C and D members
A copayment (or copay) is the amount you need to pay for a covered service. NJ FamilyCare C and D members have copays, except for Eskimos and Native American Indians under the age of 19. The amount of the copay is on your ID card.
If you go over the amount of your family yearly cost-share, you won’t have to pay a copay for more services. You’ll get a new member ID card from us after your family cost-share is met.
Remember, your family cost-share with your copay should not be more than five percent of your total family income. You should always ask for a receipt when you co-pay for services. Keep track of what you spend on copays as well as your premiums. Once you exceed your five percent cost-share amount, call the Health Benefits Coordinator (HBC) at 1-800-701-0710, TTY 1-800-701-0720, for help.
Please read your member handbook for a complete explanation of copayments.
