We take a holistic approach to healthcare and recovery, which necessitates that each person have a healthy mind and body. As part of the care you receive, you will be asked questions about sadness, worries, sleep, alcohol and drug use and trauma. The Behavioral Health team can also help with other hurdles that may make it difficult to be healthy. They are able to help identify social service needs and make the best referral for you. Those needs may include access to transportation, paying for medicine, food pantries, and much more.
Food FarmacySaint James Health in partnership with RWJ Newark Beth Israel Hospital and The Community Food Bank of New Jersey offers food pantry services to both patients and members of the community. At Saint James Health we strive to take care of the whole person and without access to health food it is impossible to improve the health outcomes of our patients.

Navigator Services (Health Insurance Enrollment)
Saint James Health offers assistance with enrollment in N.J. Family Care (Medicaid) and qualified health plans through the N.J. Health Insurance Marketplace.
Need Health Insurance?
Open Enrollment for health insurance coverage through Get Covered New Jersey, NJ’s Health Insurance Marketplace, happens once a year, from November 1 to January 31. If you want coverage to begin January 1, you must enroll by December 31. If you enroll in January, coverage will begin February 1.
The Open Enrollment period is typically the only time you can enroll in coverage through the Marketplace. If you have a qualifying life event, such as marriage, pregnancy, having a baby, or adoption, you may qualify for a Special Enrollment Period (SEP) to enroll in coverage outside of Open Enrollment. Also, people at a certain income level can enroll throughout the year. SEPs also allow current enrollees to make plan changes.
