Hospitals & Ancillary Providers
To ensure bills are paid correctly and in a timely manner, bills must be submitted within the time frame specified in the Hospital or Ancillary Provider Agreement or by law.
Hospitals, health care professionals, and facilities that are exempt from the state's mandate must follow these simple instructions to avoid payment delays:
- Itemize services using Revenue Codes, HCPCS and CPT®-4 codes, where applicable.
- Submit charges on original red and white UB04 claim forms.
- Billed charges must reflect the hospital’s usual and customary charges.
- Attach copies of related medical records to the submission and mail to:
Horizon Casualty Services, Inc.
PO Box 10175
Newark, NJ 07101-3175
Coding and reporting of services must be in accordance with standard coding practices that are consistent with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid (CMS) National Correct Coding Initiatives (NCCI).
Workers’ compensation bills are processed according to the terms and conditions in the contract. Reimbursement of billed services may be issued by the claimant’s insurer or the TPA. Reimbursement of billed services for State of New Jersey claimants is issued by HCS.
Hospitals and providers may call HCS at 1-800-985-7777 for reimbursement status of previously submitted bills.
For PIP claims, HCS processes bills received from participating hospitals and ancillary providers according to the terms and conditions in the Hospital or Ancillary Provider Agreement and the State of New Jersey PIP Regulations.
The PIP insurers’ limit of liability for any medical expense benefit shall be the amounts identified in the New Jersey PIP Fee Schedule (N.J.A.C. 11:3-29).
