It is WellCare’s mission to enhance our members’ health and quality of life and partner with providers and government agencies to provide quality, cost-effective health care solutions to the members we are privileged to serve. With the intent to further this mission in New Jersey, WellCare was approved to begin serving Medicaid members in New Jersey effective December 2013. We've since acquired Healthfirst Health Plans of New Jersey’s Medicaid members, and launched the Managed Long Term Services and Supports (MLTSS) program, both effective July 1, 2014.
