About The Program:
NJ InCK will provide early assessment to identify children, adolescents, and young adults who have significant health issues as indicated by their medical, behavioral, and social risks, through a self-assessment called the NJ InCK HealthStory. Those who qualify may be eligible to receive additional care coordination and case management services. These new services will be provided through Advanced Case Management Teams (ACMT) led by social workers, and including community health workers, child life specialists, and family support specialists.
The ACMT will begin the family-centered interdisciplinary plan of care process that will address social and educational needs of the child. These services are supported by an alternative payment model implemented within the NJ FamilyCare (Medicaid) program, administered by the New Jersey Department of Human Services.

NJAAP is working with pediatric practices within Monmouth and Ocean counties who serve patients enrolled in NJ FamilyCare to help implement the InCK model by engaging pediatricians and practice staff to encourage families who are eligible to take the NJ InCK HealthStory today!
