By Fredrick P. Niemann, Esq. a New Jersey Medicaid Application Attorney.
The Medicaid application process is different in each state. In New Jersey, the county Medicaid office is available to answer questions about an eligibility, qualifying for Medicaid, or ins and outs of the application process.  But good luck getting a live person or call back, especially in Essex and Camden counties.
You have one option when completing a Medicaid application:

• Complete an application in person at the community Medicaid office in Freehold, Toms River, Trenton or New Brunswick.

• A phone application is not permitted.

Information to Have on Hand for Your Medicaid Application

When completing your Medicaid application, you will need the following:

• Birth certificate or driver’s license

• Social security card or proof of alien status.

• Paystubs, Social Security statements, Supplemental Security Income, Veteran’s Benefits, or other retirement income or tax return to prove your income.

• Proof of any financial assets available to you.

• Proof of disability – If you are completing a Medicaid application because you’re disabled, your doctor may need to submit documentation as specified on your Medicaid application.

• Proof of residence.

• Your red, white and blue Medicare card or other proof of insurance.
