Terms and Conditions

When we launched our Facebook and twitter pages in 2010, we did so knowing that social media sites allow us to provide you with information quickly and easily. We want to have a conversation with our more than 3.6 million members and anyone else in New Jersey who is seeking information from us. This new blog, Horizon Viewpoints, is another avenue for our conversation and the sharing of information.

We also hope to use this site to inform, assist and entertain you. But like everything, there are some rules. This is a business page. Therefore, we ask that all information posted on the site be professional. Please be mindful that what you publish will be public for a long time. You are personally responsible for the content you publish on social media sites including this page. Respect copyright, fair use and financial disclosure laws. Do not post commercial messages or chain letters. If it is questionable, don’t post it. Any inappropriate posts will be removed.

Please do not post any information that could be considered Protected Health Information, Nonpublic Personal Financial or Health Information under Federal law, or Personal or Privileged Information under New Jersey state law. We call all of this “Private Information”. Any posts with Private Information or otherwise containing medical information about you or another person may be removed or your inquiry may be redirected to protect the privacy of all concerned. Also, please do not post any personal contact information.

For members seeking customer service, please call the number on the back of your Horizon BCBSNJ card or contact us on Twitter at www.twitter.com/horizonbcbsnj.
