Horizon PPO Network

We value our relationships with our participating physicians and health care professionals. They are key to Making Healthcare Work for our customers and the communities we serve.

Physicians and health care professionals in our Horizon PPO Network primarily treat Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey members who are enrolled in Horizon PPO or Indemnity plans. Participating physicians and health care professionals are required to meet our credentialing standards. Participating physicians and other health care professionals have agreements with us to participate in the Horizon PPO Network.

We encourage members 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 health care professional networks to ensure we’re meeting the needs of our members throughout New Jersey and certain 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 (Kent, New Castle and Sussex counties).

If your primary practice address is in New Jersey or one of the above-noted counties in New York, Pennsylvania or Delaware and you meet our credentialing criteria, you are eligible to participate in our Horizon PPO Network.
