Researching new technology and treatments

Horizon BCBSNJ regularly reviews new medical technology to decide if its use for treatment is eligible for coverage and if we need to develop medical policies for it. Horizon BCBSNJ has a process to review new prescription drugs, procedures, devices, equipment and treatments. As part of this process, we research published peer-reviewed scientific literature.

If you and your doctor want us to review new technology that would support your treatment plan, please ask your doctor to call Horizon BCBSNJ at 1-800-624-1110.
