Horizon Behavioral Health℠ Program: 2020 Management Changes

Horizon BCBSNJ is in the process of transitioning the administrative and clinical management of the Horizon Behavioral Health program – behavioral health services and benefits – from our current program administrator, Beacon Health Options (formerly ValueOptions), to our internal operations.

The transition will occur in a phased approach.

  • Effective December 30, 2019 all administrative and clinical management for our Medicare Advantage plans will be managed by Horizon BCBSNJ's internal operations.

  • Behavioral health specialists will need to work with Beacon Health Options for certain processes until on or about April 1, 2020 for all other Horizon BCBSNJ plans – including fully insured plans/products, self-insured (Administrative Services Only [ASO]) employer group plans including the State Health Benefits Program (SHBP) and the School Employees' Health Benefits Program (SEHBP) and the Federal Employee Program® (FEP®).

Access the Horizon Behavioral Health program webpage for information about the program and to review Horizon Behavioral Health Network Specialists assignments.
