Service

Horizon BCBSNJ has a number of service areas that can assist with authorizations and prior authorizations. For these specialized service areas to perform their functions efficiently and effectively, it’s important that their time is not spent responding to basic benefits, enrollment and eligibility inquiries.

Please seek basic benefits, enrollment and eligibility information prior to contacting our Precertification Call Center for an authorization request. If you require documentation that a service does not require precertification, a Physician Services Representative can provide both the information you need and a service reference number that documents the information you were provided.
