Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) is a fast and easy way to receive reimbursement in an electronic format from Horizon BCBSNJ.
EFT helps our providers:

- Reduce administrative effort and expense.
- Eliminate the risk of checks being lost or stolen.
EFT Registration for Professionals
EFT registration for participating and nonparticipating physicians, other health care and ancillary professionals is performed through NaviNet®. To register for EFT, sign in to NaviNet.net, access the Horizon BCBSNJ Plan Central page and go to > Claim Management > EFT Registration > Enroll.
Once you enroll, we will perform two test deposits (under a dollar) into the bank account you indicated. You must confirm receipt of the test deposits within 30 days to complete your EFT registration. Once you confirm that the tests were successful, it takes only 2 to 4 business days before EFTs begin.
If you’re not yet registered with NaviNet, please visit NaviNet.net and click 'sign up.'
