Medical Injectables Program

Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey is committed to providing your patients, our members, with access to high-quality health care services that are consistent with nationally recognized clinical criteria and guidelines.

As part of that commitment, Horizon BCBSNJ collaborates with Magellan Rx Management, a specialty pharmaceutical management company to administer our Medical Injectables Program (MIP). Magellan Rx Management conducts medical necessity and appropriateness reviews (MNARs) for specific injectable medications.

Out of Network Consent Form
As part of this program, and in compliance with our Out-of-Network Referral Policy¹, referring/prescribing doctors who plan to use a nonparticipating specialty pharmacy or home health care provider for drugs/services for a member enrolled in a Horizon BCBSNJ plan that includes out-of-network benefits must complete a copy of a new MIP-specific version of our Consent for Referral to an Out-of-Network Provider form.

Complying with the guidelines of our Out-of-Network Referral Policy helps ensure that members enrolled in plans with out-of-network benefits are made aware in advance when referring/prescribing doctors plan to use a nonparticipating provider. The policy also helps ensure that members understand their potential out-of-pocket costs when using a nonparticipating provider.

Hemophilia Drugs
Since August 15, 2019, Magellan Rx Management conducts medical necessity and appropriateness review (MNAR) for hemophilia drugs.

Hemophilia Case Review Form
As part of this program, rendering providers of hemophilia products must complete a Hemophilia Case Review Form prior to the dispensing of the first dose and prior to the dispensing of subsequent doses that will document:

  • Original prescription information
  • Requested amount to be dispensed (including specific vial sizes
  • Vial sizes available
  • Patient clinical history (including patient product inventory and bleed history)

This case review process will help ensure appropriate administration of medication, assay management, inventory management and patient engagement, as well as helping ensure that bleed history is appropriately documented and tracked.
