Guidance, news, and legislation affecting businesses and employees

AmeriHealth New Jersey is monitoring the latest news from medical and regulatory experts to offer guidance to businesses. Refer to this page for important resources as we navigate this unprecedented situation together.

Ensuring access to care

Greater access. To ensure members receive the care and services they need, we are:

  • covering the cost of testing and related visits
  • expanding access to primary care and specialists through telemedicine
  • broadening emotional support through telebehavioral health and digital tools

COVID-19 website. All of the care and services we’ve made available for members can be found on our COVID-19 resource page. This page is continually updated to provide reliable COVID-19 news, FAQs on member care and coverage, and information about COVID-19 test centers. Visit the site.

Supporting employers

Coverage for furloughed staff. To support you during this challenging time, we are honoring requests to continue coverage for employees who are furloughed or temporarily laid off.

Offering premium relief. Customers who are unable to pay their premium may temporarily pay by credit card using our eBill system. Businesses experiencing extreme hardship should contact their broker or account representative to take advantage of our Deferred Premium Program, which provides eligible businesses a 60 day grace period for either April or May premiums.

Small business loans. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce has many resources to guide small businesses. The NJ Chamber of Commerce also has information available.

Staying informed

Legislative updates. AmeriHealth New Jersey is working closely with state and federal agencies to understand new and pending legislation related to COVID-19 and how it affects your business and health coverage. Check out this summary of the current legislation.

Check back often. As we continue to make changes to our normal business practices, we will keep you informed through this site. Have more questions about your business? Ask us.
