Identification

The member’s ID card is an important tool in determining the product in which your patient is enrolled. Most cards include general coverage and copayment information, as well as important phone numbers. Both the front and back of the ID card contain important information.

The member’s identification (ID) number is the most important link between you, your patient and Horizon BCBSNJ. It is critical that you include all characters when submitting claims to us.

As a physician or other health care professional who participates in our Horizon Managed Care Network and/or our Horizon PPO Network, you must, according to the terms of your Agreement, accept our allowance for eligible services provided to Horizon BCBSNJ members (less any applicable copayment, coinsurance or deductible amounts) as payment in full.

For more information about allowances for services provided to members in various Horizon BCBSNJ plans, see the Claims Submissions and Reimbursement section.
