Lifeline Assistance Program: Free Cell Phone

Eligible Horizon NJ Health members can receive a free cell phone and wireless phone service through SafeLink Wireless, a Federal Lifeline Assistance program. You can use your phone to stay in touch with your family, your doctor, your Horizon NJ Health case manager and Member Services.

You may qualify for SafeLink Wireless because you are enrolled in NJ FamilyCare. After you qualify, you will have 350 free minutes and unlimited text messages every month. There are no bills, so there are no surprises. If you run out of minutes, you can buy extra minutes for just 10 cents a minute. You will always be able to call 911 or Horizon NJ Health Member Services for free, even if you run out of minutes.

There are three ways you can enroll:

  • Visit to apply online.
  • Print and fill out the application and mail it back.
  • Call SafeLink at 1-800-SafeLink (723-3546).
