N.J. Admin. Code § 10:69-3.23 - County residence for identification

(a) Residence in a county is not an eligibility requirement. A county of residence is necessary to identify which CWA is legally responsible for receipt, registration, and processing an application and for issuance of a Health Benefits Identification (HBID) Card and/or HBID Emergency Services Letter, but shall not preclude or limit the opportunity for any person residing in New Jersey to apply for and receive Medicaid coverage without delay.
(b) Wherever a family is living shall be considered that family's county residence. When a beneficiary family, or any member thereof, goes to another county or state for the purpose of a temporary visit, that county or state shall not become the family's residence unless N.J.A.C. 10:69-3.24 applies.
(c) A care facility or a public or private institution of custodial, curative, or penal character shall not be considered an individual's customary residence. Upon leaving such facility, the individual retains the same residence status that he or she had prior to admission. If the family moved during that individual's absence from the home, the county residence shall be that of the family.
