OMNIA Health Plans

Our OMNIA℠ Health Plans give enrolled members the flexibility to use any hospital participating in our Horizon Hospital Network and any participating physician, other health care professional or ancillary provider participating in our Horizon Managed Care Network.

Features of our OMNIA Health Plans for individuals, families and groups:

  • Primary Care Physician (PCP) selection is not required.
  • Referrals are not required. Certain services/supplies do require prior authorization.
  • OMNIA Health Plan members may use any physician or other health care professional from our broad Horizon Managed Care Network and any hospital from the Horizon Hospital Network, but will maximize their benefits and incur lower cost sharing when they use OMNIA Tier 1-designated physicians, other health care professionals, ancillary providers and hospitals.
  • OMNIA Health Plans do not include out-of-network benefits. OMNIA Health Plan members must use physicians and other health care professionals who participate in the Horizon Managed Care Network and hospitals in our Horizon Hospital Network, except in cases of medical emergencies.¹
  • OMNIA Health Plan members have coverage for eligible preventive services (physical exams, well-child care, immunizations, etc.) with no member cost sharing when these services are provided by a physician or other health care professional within the Horizon Managed Care Network.

    ¹OMNIA Health Plans offered to individual consumer, small employer, large group employers, National Accounts, Account Services Only (ASOs), Labor Accounts and Public Sector Accounts may include BlueCard® (out-of-area) coverage.

OMNIA Health Plan members can incur lower cost sharing when they use OMNIA Tier 1 physicians, other health care professionals, hospitals and ancillary providers.

OMNIA Health Plans: Provider Tier Status

All network hospitals and all physicians, other health care professionals and ancillary providers that participate in our broad Horizon Managed Care Network participate with our OMNIA Health Plans; however, OMNIA Health Plan members will incur lower cost sharing when they use OMNIA Tier 1-designated physicians, other health care professionals, hospitals and ancillary providers.

To make it easier for members to understand their cost sharing, all physicians and other health care professionals affiliated with, or who practice under or on behalf of a group practice, will participate with OMNIA Health Plans at the same tier when treating members under a particular group Tax ID Number (TIN).

For information on the evaluation criteria for the OMNIA Health Plans, please review our administrative policy, Participation Status in Products that Utilize Tiering and/or a Subset of an Existing Horizon Network.

Ancillary facilities and ancillary professionals that participate in our Horizon Managed Care Network will be designated OMNIA Tier 1. Some exceptions apply.

Access our Doctor & Hospital Finder to review physician tier-status designations for our OMNIA Health Plans.

OMNIA Health Plans include two separate maximum out-of-pocket (MOOP) limits:

Referrals

Based on the guidelines of our administrative policy,OMNIA Health Plan Tier Awareness, Horizon BCBSNJ requires that participating physicians and other health care professionals who are treating/coordinating the care of members and/or dependents enrolled in an OMNIA Health Plan discuss the cost sharing implications of using physicians, other health care professionals and facilities designated as OMNIA Tier 1 or Tier 2 with these patients (or their parents, guardians or designated personal representatives).

This conversation should be conducted at the time a determination to refer or recommend a patient to a physician, other health care professional and/or facility occurs and should be fully documented within the OMNIA Health Plan members/covered persons’ medical record.

The participating physician or other health care professional is responsible for retaining this information in the patient’s medical record and for making such documentation available, upon request by Horizon BCBSNJ, within 10 business days from the date of a request to review this information.

Review the Tier Awareness Policy.
