CentraState Healthcare System announces that it will be designated as a Tier 1 hospital for all Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey (BCBSNJ) OMNIA health plan members effective April 1, 2020.
For New Jersey patients with Horizon BCBSNJ OMNIA coverage, this means greater access to CentraState’s care for less cost. OMNIA Health Plan members incur lower out-of-pocket costs, sharing expenses when they access care from OMNIA Tier 1-designated hospitals, physicians and ancillary providers and services.
CentraState is currently participating in Horizon’s network, but had been in OMNIA Health Plans as a Tier 2 hospital.
“Providing our communities with affordable, patient-centered quality care has always been our priority,” said John T. Gribbin, President and CEO of CentraState Healthcare System. “Broadening our collaboration with Horizon enables CentraState to better fulfill its mission of delivering integrated care to our community while providing affordable access to more OMNIA health plan members.”
Last year, both CentraState and Horizon BCBSNJ announced the accelerated development of value-based care initiatives at CentraState by collaborating on “Episodes of Care” programs for orthopedics and maternity care, integrating Horizon’s patient-centered, value-based care models into CentraState’s existing efforts to improve the health and well-being of its patients.
In addition, CentraState recently announced a clinical affiliation with Atlantic Health System focusing on specific service lines that will further advance value-based care initiatives.
