2/11/11 Effective January 16, 2011, a New Jersey state law requires health insurers offering fully insured managed care health plans, that include out-of-network benefits, to reimburse claims submitted by out-of-network providers based on a valid assignment of benefits. According to this law, the state of New Jersey considers these plans as managed care health plans that include out-of-network benefits.

2/3/11 - Legislative and court challenges to the PPACA are addressed in the Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey Broker Brief Notes. In recent weeks, there have been a number of legislative and court challenges to the new law. In January, the U.S. House of Representatives voted to repeal the legislation. For this repeal to take place, the House bill would have to be passed by the U.S. Senate and signed by President Barack Obama. However, the bill did not pass the Senate and even if it had, it is virtually certain that President Obama would have vetoed the bill. Horizon BCBS does not see repeal as a threat to health care reform legislation.
