NEWARK, N.J. (CBS 2) — Hundreds of New Jersey teachers are recovering from a health coverage scare.

About 800 teachers in Paterson and Newark were without health coverage for four months due to a clerical error.

Paterson’s teachers have had their coverage restored and a spokesperson for the city’s Education Association said all covered expenses will be paid.

Some Newark teachers, however, were still waiting for their coverage to be restored.
