Horizon Managed Care Network

We value our relationships with our participating physicians and health care professionals.

Physicians and health care professionals who participate in our Horizon Managed Care Network treat members who are enrolled in one of our managed care products, which include:

  • OMNIA Health Plans
  • Horizon Direct Access
  • Horizon EPO
  • Horizon HMO
  • Horizon POS
  • NJ DIRECT
  • Horizon Medicare Advantage plans

Many of these plans require members to select a Primary Care Physician (PCP) and to use participating physicians, other health care professionals and facilities. We encourage those members enrolled in managed care plans that include out-of-network benefits to use participating physicians, other health care professionals and facilities to help them maximize their benefits and ensure they are incurring the lowest possible out-of-pocket expenses.

Network area and current needs

We continually evaluate our networks to ensure we’re meeting the needs of our members throughout New Jersey and contiguous counties in New York (Bronx, Kings, New York, Orange, Richmond, Rockland and Westchester counties), Pennsylvania (Bucks, Delaware, Lehigh, Monroe, Northampton, Philadelphia and Pike counties) and Delaware (New Castle County).

If your primary practice address is within New Jersey or the contiguous counties of New York, Pennsylvania or Delaware listed above and you meet our credentialing criteria, you are eligible to participate in our Horizon Managed Care Network.

We are not currently accepting applications from pathologists, unless you are a hospital-based pathologist.
