Great news for North Carolina residents! As reported by the News & Observer recently, UnitedHealthcare has filed with the North Carolina Department of Insurance to sell health plans on the North Carolina health insurance Exchange for 2015. Currently, North Carolina has only 2 health insurers on the exchange for 2014: BCBS-NC and Coventry Healthcare. Currently, many North Carolina residents only have one choice of insurer on the exchange as Coventry currently does not have a plan in every North Carolina county.

NC residents will have more health plan options in 2015!
