Recently, the state’s largest hospital, Bergen New Bridge Medical Center, and NJ’s biggest insurance company, Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield (Horizon BCBS), announced the formation of a new partnership. In July 2019, NJ Governor Phil Murphy joined representatives from Bergen New Bridge, Horizon BCBS, and Bergen County to celebrate the alliance, which is expected to increase access to multiple healthcare services for local residents.

The new agreement will enable Bergen New Bridge to accept insurance for approximately 230,000 Horizon BCBS members in Bergen County and others whose plans were previously denied. Governor Murphy praised the cooperation, stating that expanding access to the addiction-rehabilitation program and other means of aid at the hospital will help fill treatment gaps in the state.
