United Healthcare Compass Network North Carolina
Over the last few days since 2015 health insurance rates were made available for North Carolina, we have been excited to see how the new kid on the block, United Healthcare, stacks up to other insurers offering coverage on the North Carolina marketplace.
For 2015, the United Healthcare Compass network will be used for North Carolina residents purchasing coverage on the health insurance marketplace. The Compass network is new for 2015, so we have been very curious to see how it stacks up against other networks in North Carolina, including Bluecross Blueshield of NC and Coventry Healthcare of the Carolinas (an Aetna company).

Switching gears to the far west high country of North Carolina, we are happy to see a variety of providers in Watauga and Avery counties, including Boone and Blowing Rock, including 25 Unitedhealth Premium primary care providers, and a total of 63 primary care providers within 20 miles of Boone!
In the Charlotte area,
we are pleased to see that Carolinas Medical Center listed as “In Network”. UPDATE: Carolinas HealthCare is NO LONGER in the United Healthcare Compass Network. Click here for more details. In the Charlotte metro area, Novant is now the primary In Network hospital system. And of course, in central North Carolina, Duke, WakeMed, Wake Forest Baptist, and The University of North Carolina hospital systems all appear to be “In network” status as well! As always, we will post more updates as we see them. Stay tuned!
