Register for EFT before November 3
As the current health care environment moves the medical community in new directions, Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey (Horizon BCBSNJ) continues to assess and simplify the way that we do business with providers.
Beginning November 3, 2020, Horizon BCBSNJ will no longer make claim payments using print checks. Payments to providers not registered for Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) will be made via a single use account (SUA) paper card.
Once a claim is processed, an image of a SUA card(s) will be mailed, payable in the exact amount owed.1 SUA cards feature a high level of security, including a unique 16-digit SUA card number created for each payment.
If you are not registered to receive EFT, you will automatically begin receiving SUA paper card payments on and after November 3, 2020.2
If you do not wish to receive payment via a SUA card, we strongly encourage you to register for EFT.
