Managed care is a term that is used to describe a health insurance plan that coordinates the provision, quality and cost of care for its enrolled members. In general, when you enroll in a managed care plan, you select a regular doctor, called a primary care practitioner (PCP), who will be responsible for coordinating your health care. Your PCP will refer you to specialists or other health care providers as necessary.
Horizon Health Center, Inc. partners with several managed care providers in New Jersey for Medicaid/Medicare Managed Care and New Jersey Family Care for medical services. If you are enrolling in a managed care plan and want Horizon Health Center providers for medical and dental services, you will need to select anyone of the participating plans of your choosing then select a Horizon Health Center provider as your PCP or you can make an appointment to meet with a Plan representative about enrollment at any of Horizon Health Center locations by logging in and making an appointment.
NOTE: If you are pregnant or require treatment for an emergency medical condition, Medicaid coverage is available regardless of alien status. A doctor must certify that you are pregnant or had an emergency, and you must meet all other eligibility requirements.
