CentraState Healthcare System, Freehold Township, announced it was designated as a Tier 1 hospital for all Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey OMNIA health plan members effective April 1. For New Jersey patients with Horizon Blue Cross 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 had previously been participating 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.”
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.
