For North Carolina residents in the Charlotte metro area, and surrounding counties, it is very important to pay close attention to networks when searching for an individual health insurance plan for 2016. Carolina HealthCare Network marketplace plans for 2016 information was recently published on the CHC website, which we found to be valuable for North Carolina residents. Of course, you can search ALL North Carolina marketplace plans on our plan finder by CLICKING HERE.
For purposes of this entry, we consider metro Charlotte (NC and SC) to include the following counties: Anson, Cabarrus, Cleveland, Gaston, Lincoln, Mecklenburg, Stanly and Union in North Carolina; Lancaster and York in South Carolina.
For those in the Charlotte Metro area, be aware of some important changes when selecting an individual health insurance plan for 2016:
CoventryOne-Carolinas HealthCare System individual health insurance plans are no longer sold in North or South Carolina. If you have one of these plans currently, you will automatically be enrolled in a similar Aetna Leap-Carolinas HealthCare System plan.
Blue Advantage, Blue Select and Multi-State individual health insurance plans from Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina are no longer sold in most of the Charlotte area. You may be automatically enrolled in a different plan, but there’s a chance your out-of-pocket costs could go up.
