AmeriHealth New Jersey to host series of local Welcome Events for members looking to learn more about their benefits

Cranbury, NJ, February 27, 2017 — AmeriHealth New Jersey is launching a consumer engagement initiative that will bring a series of Welcome Events to communities across the state. With the close of Open Enrollment, priority has shifted from helping members choose a health plan that's right for them to helping people understand their plan design and how to maximize their benefits.

As a statewide health plan, AmeriHealth New Jersey has always taken a grassroots approach to consumer engagement. Members can pick up a phone to dial a number or log on to a mobile app in order to tap into our resources, but hosting events in their neighborhoods allows us to provide a more personal approach to helping people navigate a complex health care system, said Ryan Petrizzi, vice president of consumer markets and product development for the company.

In addition to helping people understand how their health plan works, the goal is also to get members more comfortable with using tools we already have in place, continued Petrizzi.

AmeriHealth New Jersey members are invited to attend one of the following sessions:

Atlantic County
Shore Medical Center               Tuesday, February 28
Somers Point, NJ               3:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.

Teaneck, NJ         3:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.
Saturday, March 18
