We are excited to announce that Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey (Horizon BCBSNJ) has partnered with Hackensack Meridian Health to form Healthier New Jersey Insurance Company d/b/a Braven Health. In addition, Hackensack Meridian Health and Horizon BCBSNJ are working with RWJBarnabas Health to join Braven Health, subject to approval by the New Jersey Department of Banking and Insurance.

Braven Health, an affiliate of Horizon BCBSNJ, will offer affordable Medicare Advantage health plans with access to the Horizon Hospital Network and the Horizon Managed Care Network. Braven Health’s individual plan options will be offered to New Jersey’s Medicare-eligible population who reside in the following eight New Jersey counties: Bergen, Essex, Hudson, Middlesex, Monmouth, Ocean, Passaic and Union. Braven Health members may also live in other counties if they are enrolled with their employer. Members can enroll in Braven Health plans for a January 1, 2021 effective date.

Braven Health plans will include dental health benefits.

Because you participate in the Horizon Dental PPO Network, your existing provider agreement now includes Braven Health.

Beginning January 1, 2021, Horizon Dental PPO providers can provide services and care to patients enrolled in Braven Health plans at the in-network level of benefits. Braven Health members will have Braven Health member ID cards.
