Quarterly Update to Injectable Medication Fee Schedule: Q2 2018

Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey will update our fee schedule for injectable medications on May 1, 2018.

Effective May 1, 2018, the injectable medication fee amounts identified in the table below will decrease. We update our injectable medication fee schedule each quarter, usually reflecting industry-wide changes to the Average Sales Price (ASP) or the Average Wholesale Price (AWP) of an injectable medication. The listed rates do not reflect industry-wide changes in the ASP/AWP of these medications.
