As part of their efforts to help combat the opioid crisis in New Jersey, Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey is mailing free packets of DisposeRx®, a medicine disposal product, to members who have recently received one or more opioid prescription(s) for a duration of five days or less.  DisposeRx allows for the safe and effective disposal of opioids by forming a gel-like substance when mixed with water that prevents the retrieval of the medicine.  Click below for the full update from Horizon.

Conversion deadline for 6/1/19 renewing groups or off anniversary conversions is Friday 5/24/19 at 12:00 noon.  Any groups that are submitted after this deadline will be moved to a 7/1/19 effective date.  Horizon has determined that if a group is accepting their existing ACA plan renewal, no paperwork is necessary.   Conversions without all required documentation or submitted after deadline face the risk of losing their requested conversion date and being moved to the next month.

 This is for ALL PRE-ACA to ACA CONVERSIONS regardless if they have sent in their certification previously to Horizon and were advised they could renew as is by Small Group certification. All paperwork should be emailed to TeamFarronNJ@fnainsurance.com or FNATeamFasanella@fnainsurance.com.  Conversion paperwork should not be send to Horizon’s certification department.
