State Extends Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield Insurance

New Jersey extended its health benefits contract with Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield for another year, media outlets report. This occurred after state officials alleged the health insurer failed to meet the terms of the deal.
  
 The state will pay lower fees due to a reduction in the scope of some services Horizon was originally hired to provide to state employees. Labor members of the State Health Benefits Commission Plan Design Committee asked about savings from the navigation program that was expected to produce significant savings to the insured, including municipal employees.
