Single Use Account (SUA) Cards
Horizon BCBSNJ is moving away from making claim payments using printed checks.
If you are a provider not registered to receive Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) payments for reimbursement for your claim submissions, payments are made via a single use account (SUA) paper card. If you are not registered to receive EFT, you will automatically receive SUA paper card payments.¹
SUA cards feature a high level of security, including a unique 16-digit SUA card number created for each payment.
After a claim is processed, an image of a SUA paper card will be mailed²:
- Your SUA card payment is pre-approved and funded for the exact amount of your claim reimbursement.
- Your SUA card must be processed for the exact amount.
- No additional charges are allowed.
Processing claim payments received via a Single Use Account Card
It's easy to deposit the funds you receive via a Single Use Account (SUA) card as claim reimbursement for services provided to our members.
- Enter the following information from the card imprint located on the bottom right side of your Explanation of Payment (EOP) into your point of sale terminal:
- 16 digit card #
- 3 digit VCC code above the card #
- Expiration date
- Reconcile the Patient’s account.
The funds will be deposited into your account as with any other Visa Card transaction.
Why did I receive a SUA card?
You received a SUA card because you have not registered for EFT with Horizon BCBSNJ. For information about registering for EFT, please visit Horizonblue.com/EFT.
What is a point of sale terminal?
A point-of-sale (POS) terminal is a hardware system for processing card payments at retail locations, including medical practices and facilities.
