The tool, as well as certain prior authorization lists for ASO member groups, is accessible on the  Prior Authorization page of

To determine if a patient is fully insured or part of an ASO member group, please refer to the back of the member’s ID card.

  • Fully insured members’ cards will state: “Insured by Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey.”
