Pediatric Affiliates has decided to terminate its contract with the UnitedHealthcare Community Plan effective June 30, 2019.  We will continue to accept a number of NJ FamilyCare plans offered by other insurance carriers including Aetna Better Health, Amerigroup, and Wellcare. 

Pediatric Affiliates has strived to offer the best possible care to its patients for over 50 years.  Should you choose to continue with Pediatric Affiliates, call NJ FamilyCare at 1-800-701-0710 for information on the process that you must follow in order to change to one of the previously named plans

Since we understand that it is currently taking approximately 2-4 months to change plans, it is important to begin the process immediately in order for your new coverage to be in place by July 1, 2019.  When calling, be sure to have available your Case/Policy number and your home zip code, or the Social Security number and date of the individual(s) covered under the policy.
