AmeriHealth New Jersey launches new Value Network

Provides access to a subset of the AmeriHealth Preferred Network

Iselin and Mt. Laurel, NJ - June 13, 2011 - As part of its broader commitment to help employers better manage health care costs, AmeriHealth New Jersey has introduced the Value Network.

The AmeriHealth New Jersey Value Network is structured specifically for New Jersey-based employer groups who are looking for lower cost alternatives to their healthcare. With this option, employers experience a lower price point on their premiums, but maintain access to approximately 71 percent of AmeriHealth New Jersey's preferred network providers - enabling them to tap into the bulk of New Jersey's largest provider network.

"Providing cost-effective health coverage is one of AmeriHealth New Jersey's main priorities," said Michael Munoz, vice president for sales and marketing, AmeriHealth New Jersey. "The Value Network gives employer groups who may have trouble affording health care a significant opportunity to lower their premiums without compromising the exceptional quality, access and service levels they expect."

The AmeriHealth New Jersey Value Network is available with HMO, HMO Plus, POS, POS Plus, HSA and all coinsurance plans.

Participating employer groups can find Value Network providers and facilities at www.AmeriHealthExpress.com, and obtain more general information at 1-800-275-2583.
