Bridging Culture and Care

Providing care and information that is culturally relevant can help improve outcomes and access. Through a growing collaboration with Sanitas Medical Centers, Horizon BCBSNJ is now offering face-to-face assistance, in Spanish and English, to help people get, understand and use their health insurance as well as access the health care they need.

Sanitas Medical Centers are located in primarily Hispanic and ethnically diverse neighborhoods, and are easily accessible via public transportation, giving members a new option for buying health insurance and accessing high-quality, affordable health care. The centers offer our members same-week appointments, same-day lab tests and diagnostic imaging, and walk-in appointments for urgent care.

“Beyond the physical structures, these are medical centers that have life, that have a soul. Our doctors and medical staff treat patients as people who are genuinely concerned about their health. We are extremely excited to be serving the diverse needs within these communities.”
