AmeriHealth New Jersey offers consumer health plans on exchange for the seventh consecutive year
November 4th, 2019
Beginning tomorrow New Jersey residents can choose from 10 different AmeriHealth New Jersey health plans for 2020. The plans consist of HMOs and EPOs across the bronze, silver and gold metallic tiers. This is the seventh consecutive year AmeriHealth New Jersey will offer consumer health plans on exchange.
“We have been offering health plans on the Marketplace since the onset of the Affordable Care Act, which expanded access to coverage for New Jersey residents,” said AmeriHealth New Jersey Market President Mike Munoz. “In 2020 we’ll continue to provide a wide range of plans to meet the needs of our members.” In New Jersey all residents are required to have health care coverage.
New Jersey residents also have the option of purchasing a health plan off exchange directly from AmeriHealth New Jersey, which offers some cost-saving alternatives. There are 13 plans available off exchange, including three plans in the Select Suite that provide a 10 percent savings compared to similar on-exchange plans. Off-exchange health plans are not subsidy eligible.
Regardless of whether health care coverage is purchased on or off exchange, individuals are encouraged to make health plan selections by November 30, 2019 to ensure ID card delivery by January 1, 2020.
Important dates to remember:
November 30 The recommended date for individuals to enroll in an AmeriHealth New Jersey health plan to ensure their January invoice reflects their new plan and that they receive their 2019 ID cards by January 1, 2020.
December 15 The last day to enroll in a health plan for 2020.
January 1, 2020 The first day new health care coverage begins.
AmeriHealth New Jersey licensed sales agents are available by phone and can be reached at 1-888-879-5331. Consumers can also visit — amerihealthnj.com/enroll — to find the coverage that is right for them. The website includes a subsidy estimator that allows consumers to quickly determine if they qualify for financial assistance and how much it will cover for 2020.
