Wouldn’t it be great if you had in-network health care coverage at a hospital close to home and a health care clinic in your neighborhood? What if it came with someone who could coordinate your doctor and specialist appointments, who could get your lab results to you quickly, and who could answer your insurance questions—large or small?
The good news is CarePoint Health provides it all.
- CarePoint Health is now in-network with Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey insurance. If you have Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield insurance, you’re now covered as in-network at our hospitals (Bayonne Medical Center, Christ Hospital in Jersey City and Hoboken University Medical Center), and as Tier 1 with CarePoint Health Medical Group doctors.That means you’ll have lower out-of-pocket costs to award-winning health care in Bayonne, Hoboken and Jersey City.
- In addition, CarePoint Health does not restrict access to care based on your insurance benefits. A list of additional in-network insurance carriers with Bayonne Medical Center, Christ Hospital in Jersey City, Hoboken University Medical Center and CarePoint Health Medical Group doctors can be found here.
- You should also know that if you are not in-network with CarePoint Health you can still seek emergency care with us. New Jersey law mandates that New Jersey insurance companies always cover emergency room services as in-network,* including hospital stays. That means you are only responsible for your deductible or out-of-pocket expenses, no matter where you receive care.This is to protect patients in a medical emergency to ensure they receive access to the closest, most appropriate care in the event of a medical emergency, regardless of network status.
The benefits to being in-network at CarePoint Health
To be in-network with your insurance plan, our doctors and facilities must meet certain credentialing requirements and agree to accept a discounted rate for covered services under your health plan.
When you choose CarePoint Health as your health care partner, you are choosing a network of doctors, nurses and other medical professionals who are dedicated to continuously providing a high standard of patient-centered care, smart technology and safety assurance.
