  • Medical Claims

    You can submit out-of-network medical claims by mail or use the Horizon Blue App. This includes claims for behavioral health, prescriptions, eyeglasses, and durable medical equipment like breast pumps, sleep apnea machines, diabetic supplies, orthotics, etc.

    Dental Claims

    You can submit out-of-network dental claims by mail. Dental claims are not accepted on the Horizon Blue app.

    Submitting a Claim

    1. Download and complete the appropriate claim form.
    2. Include an itemized bill. An itemized bill includes:
      • Patient name
      • Member ID number
      • Date of service
      • Diagnosis code(s)
      • Procedure code(s)
      • Place of service
      • Total charge
    3. Submit your claim by mail to the address printed on the form or use the Horizon Blue App.

    For Medicare claims, you must include a Medicare Explanation of Benefits (EOB). An Explanation of Benefits (EOB) is the notice that your Medicare Advantage Plan or Part D prescription drug plan typically sends you after you receive medical services or items. You only receive an EOB if you have Medicare Advantage or Part D. An EOB is not the same as a Medicare Summary Notice. It is also important to remember that an EOB is not a bill.

  • Your Horizon BCBSNJ plan requires you to receive prior authorization or a referral for certain services or treatments. The Explanation of Benefits (EOB) statement includes information in the Message Codes section about why your claim was denied. Under the Detail Information field on the EOB, you will see a column listing the Message Codes that apply to the processing of your claim. There will be a full description of your Message Codes explaining why your claim was either paid, pending or denied. The Message Code M737 means that your claim has been denied because there was no prior authorization or referral on file for this visit.

    If you used an in-network doctor, other health care professional or facility, the provider should have submitted the request for prior authorization or given you a referral.

    Prior authorization (sometimes called pre-authorization, prior approval or pre-certification) is the written approval by Horizon BCBSNJ, prior to the date of service, for a doctor or other health care professional or facility to provide specific services or supplies. Your Horizon BCBSNJ plan may require prior authorization for certain services before you receive them, except in an emergency. Prior authorization isn’t a promise your health insurance plan will cover the cost for services. Your participating doctor will work with Horizon BCBSNJ to obtain required prior authorization.

    A referral is a written recommendation from your Primary Care Physician (PCP) or participating physician for you to receive specific care from a participating doctor or facility. Your Horizon BCBSNJ plan will determine if you need a referral. Please call your PCP or participating physician to submit a request for a referral for specialty care or services. A referral is not a guarantee of coverage.
