The State Health Plan is administered by Blue Cross, Blue Shield of North Carolina. Employees may choose between two plan options – the Traditional 70/30 Plan, or the Enhanced 80/20 Plan. The cost of individual coverage varies depending upon which plan is chosen and completion of wellness activity. Employees are responsible for the cost of dependent premiums. The State Health Plan runs on a calendar year. Please see the following rate chart for a Summary of 2020 Plan Options. You may also visit the State Health Plan website for additional information and plan details.
To make changes to your State Health Plan outside of open enrollment, employees must have a qualifying event. Examples of qualifying events include birth, marriage, divorce, loss or gain of other coverage, and death.
