Braven Health℠

Braven Health is a new insurance company created through a partnership with Horizon BCBSNJ, Hackensack Meridian Health (HMH) and RWJBarnabas Health. Braven Health, an affiliate of Horizon BCBSNJ, offers Medicare Advantage plans in certain New Jersey counties. Plans are effective January 1, 2021.

Braven Health consumer plans are offered to Medicare beneficiaries who reside in the following New Jersey counties: Bergen, Essex, Hudson, Middlesex, Monmouth, Ocean, Passaic and Union. Braven Health also offers Medicare Advantage plans to employer groups for their retirees when the headquarters of the employer group is within one of the eight New Jersey counties listed above.

In addition to offering Braven Health plans, we will continue to offer Horizon BCBSNJ Medicare Advantage plans in all 21 New Jersey counties.

If you are a participating provider for Horizon BCBSNJ Medicare Advantage plans, Braven Health has been added as a new plan offering that you will service.

Members enrolled in Braven Health plans have in-network access to providers in our Horizon Managed Care Network and Horizon Hospital Network throughout our local service area (New Jersey and participating counties Delaware, New York and Pennsylvania).

Though created through our partnership with HMH and RWJBarnabas Health, Braven Health members are not restricted to using, or encouraged to use, HMH or RWJBarnabas Health-affiliated providers and hospitals.
