Horizon Assists in Harvey Relief Efforts

Tuesday, September 5, 2017

Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey (Horizon BCBSNJ) is extending assistance to its members living in communities impacted by Hurricane Harvey, and through The Horizon Foundation for New Jersey, has pledged $100,000 in direct grants and a special matching gifts program.
Thousands of Horizon BCBSNJ members live in Texas and Louisiana and are employed by New Jersey-based companies with offices in the region, and many more are policyholders from Medicare, the State Health Benefits Program and the School Employees Health Benefits Program.

As the Hurricane has disrupted shipment and delivery channels in the region, Horizon BCBSNJ is allowing its mail order and specialty pharmacy customers in Harvey’s path to refill their medications at any local pharmacy, and is permitting early refills of prescriptions.
