Updated COVID-19 Resource Guide

Due to the COVID-19 public health emergency (PHE) ending on May 11, 2023, Horizon BCBSNJ has announced that certain provisions that had been put in place for members and customers during the PHE will go back to pre-COVID-19 coverage beginning May 12, 2023, including:


Members will not have to pay anything out of pocket for the COVID-19 vaccine and boosters when they use an in-network provider.

COVID-19 Testing and Treatment

Members will continue to have coverage for lab PCR and Rapid COVID-19 tests and treatment when received in network; however, members may have to pay their copay, deductible and/or coinsurance. If members have out-of-network coverage and use an out-of-network provider, they will pay more out of pocket. In addition, members will have to pay for over-the-counter, at home COVID-19 tests.


COVID-19-related care will now be treated like any other telemedicine service. For in-network care, members will pay their copay, coinsurance and/or deductible.
