In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Governor Murphy has provided much-needed protections and waivers for NJ patients, including requiring hospitals and Federally Qualified Health Centers to WAIVE COVID-19 testing fees for the uninsured.

On March 10th, Governor Murphy announced the State’s efforts in supporting consumer access to COVID-19 screening, testing, and testing-related services. This waiver includes emergency room, urgent care, and office visits related to COVID-19 testing for the state’s individual, small and large group markets; the State Health Benefits and School Employee Health Benefits Plans; NJ FamilyCare’s CHIP population; and the state’s uninsured population, eligible for the Charity Care program.
