Cranbury, NJ, October 31, 2022 – Open enrollment for individuals begins on Tuesday, November 1, and AmeriHealth New Jersey is proud to again offer New Jersey residents 12 different health plan options for 2023. These include 11 plans that consist of EPOs across the Bronze, Silver and Gold metallic tiers, as well as a catastrophic option.

“At AmeriHealth New Jersey, our members – and their varying health and health plan needs – are our top priority,” said AmeriHealth New Jersey Market President Mike Munoz. “We are proud of the wide range of options and top-quality customer service that we offer to New Jersey residents as they are navigating open enrollment.”

Our members are at the center of everything we do. We have been committed to offering affordable health plans with comprehensive health care coverage and access to quality care,  since the launch of the Affordable Care Act. We offer access to a variety of networks, and zero-dollar virtual care options with 24/7 access through online video, mobile app, or phone.

AmeriHealth New Jersey’s AmeriHealth Advantage plan is one of the most popular plans, with over ninety five percent of our members enrolled, because of its affordability and access to richer Tier 1 benefits. For 2023, AmeriHealth New Jersey is introducing one new Hospital Advantage EPO in the Silver tier in 20 of the state’s 21 counties.

In 2021, New Jersey transitioned to a state-based exchange, Get Covered New Jersey, which will continue to serve as the state’s official health insurance marketplace. New Jersey residents are required to have health care coverage, and consumers who purchase or renew a health plan through Get Covered New Jersey may be eligible for a state-based subsidy, in addition to the existing federal subsidy.

“We remain committed to the state-based exchange, with quality and affordability top of mind,” said Munoz.

Off-exchange plans provide New Jersey residents with additional options

New Jersey residents can also purchase a health plan off exchange, directly from AmeriHealth New Jersey. There are 14 plans available off exchange, including two plans in the Select Suite that provide a ten percent savings compared to similar on-exchange plans. AmeriHealth New Jersey’s off exchange Select Suite of plans are amongst the most affordable options in the Silver tier. Off-exchange health plans are not subsidy eligible.

In order to receive ID cards by January 1, 2023, individuals should make health plan selections, whether on or off-exchange, by November 30, 2022. All new and current AmeriHealth New Jersey members will receive ID cards.
