MonmouthCares' Care Management is available to all families that live in Monmouth County and meet the eligibility requirements set forth by the New Jersey Children's System of Care.
All community referrals to MonmouthCares must start with a call to PerformCare New Jersey at 1-877-652-7624 to access services. 24-hours a day, 7 days a week. Call PerformCare regarding your child if you are concerned about an emotional or behavioral problem, or if a trusted person, such as a friend, family member, teacher or counselor, your doctor, or your clergyman, thinks your child, youth, or young adult needs help.
Youth who are eligible for services through PerformCare are primarily between the ages of 5 and 21 (up to his or her 21st birthday), reside in the State of New Jersey and have an emotional or serious mental health or behavioral need. Special consideration for services is given to children under the age of five.
There is no charge for calling PerformCare. The services we recommend are authorized without regard to income, private health insurance, or eligibility for Medicaid/NJ FamilyCare or other health benefits programs. When your child is registered for services at PerformCare, you will be asked to provide details about your insurance coverage.
Please note that access to services provided under the Children's System of Care (CSOC), such as Care Management Organization (CMO) or Mobile Response and Stabilization Services (MRSS), requires you to complete a Medicaid application. In doing so, your family may be found eligible for Medicaid as secondary insurance, or your child may be approved for state funds that cover the cost of certain behavioral health services to supplement your private insurance benefits. This application is not completed by PerformCare staff, but by the Care Manager or Crisis Mobile Response Worker.
For more regarding eligibility, please refer to PerformCare's website.
