Update: Members’ cost sharing waived for treatment of COVID-19 through March 2021

Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey (Horizon BCBSNJ) is extending its previously announced waiver of member cost sharing for inpatient and outpatient treatment of a primary diagnosis of COVID-19 when care is delivered in-network. Members will pay no deductible, copay or coinsurance for covered services related to inpatient or outpatient treatment when the primary diagnosis is COVID-19 through March 31, 2021. This demonstrates our continued dedication to helping our members get the care they need during the COVID-19 public health emergency by eliminating costs that may be a barrier to treatment.

This information applies to all fully insured members, including those covered through Medicaid, Medicare Advantage, Individual and Small Group policies, as well as members covered by the State Health Benefits Program (SHBP) and the School Employees’ Health Benefits Program (SEHBP). Horizon BCBSNJ will continue to work with other self-insured customers that provide coverage for their employees on their specific plan designs.
