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

CRANBURY, N.J.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–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
