Working to lower the cost of prescription drugs

We believe everyone should have access to safe, effective, essential prescription medicines when they need them, at a price they can afford.

That’s why Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey – along with 17 other Blue Plans, the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association and the Federal Employee Program® (FEP®) – recently announced our partnership with Civica Rx (Civica). Civica, a not-for-profit company, was founded in September 2018 to ensure that important generic medications are available and affordable. This partnership will help Civica develop more generic medicines.

Our partnership with Civica will mean savings for individuals and families. Initial generic medications are expected to be available by 2022.

This is one of the many ways Horizon BCBSNJ is demonstrating a commitment to lower health care costs and to improve the health of our members.
