HUDSON COUNTY -- CarePoint Health announced that it has reached a new three-year rate agreement with Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey (Horizon BCBSNJ). The agreement also ends all pending litigation between CarePoint Health and Horizon BCBSNJ. Effective Oct. 1, CarePoint Health-Bayonne Medical Center, CarePoint Health-Christ Hospital in Jersey City and CarePoint Health-Hoboken University Medical Center will return to the Horizon Hospital Network.

Please always call your insurance or medical provider to confirm any information as to whether they will accept your insurance.

The new rate agreement means that Horizon BCBSNJ members for all products, including the NJ State Health Benefits Program (SHBP), will once again be able to access CarePoint health care facilities on an in-network basis, including elective and emergency procedures, starting October 1, 2017.

“We are excited to partner with Horizon to move healthcare forward in Northern New Jersey,” said CarePoint Health CEO, Jeff Mandler. “This agreement allows CarePoint to continue to invest in our people and infrastructure while ensuring care for the most vulnerable among us,” Mandler said.

“We’re pleased about reaching a new rate agreement with CarePoint, which will provide our members with additional options for in-network health care services,” said Allen J. Karp, Senior Vice President of Healthcare Management for Horizon.
