Sweeney Gives Support to Horizon Legislation

Trenton – Senate President Steve Sweeney issued the following statement in support of legislation introduced in the General Assembly today to reorganize Horizon Blue Cross-Blue Shield of New Jersey, the state’s largest health insurer:

“This bill will help Horizon to move forward with reforms that aid health care consumers and enhance the quality of care they receive. These changes will better enable New Jersey’s only not-for-profit health insurer to modernize the way it is organized so it can invest more in member benefits, including consumer technology and preventive care. They will help keep costs under control and improve health outcomes, so that medical care is affordable and accessible. For those who depend on Horizon, this change will ensure the company can continue to provide the highest quality healthcare into the future.”
