Changes to the N.C. State Health Plan

Here are a few of the changes included in this year's N.C. State Health Plan:

  • Eligible employees will be automatically enrolled in the 70/30 Plan and MUST TAKE ACTION to otherwise choose the 80/20 Plan and/or to reduce their premium.
  • The only Wellness Premium Credit activity is the Tobacco Attestation. Active members in the 70/30 Plan and 80/20 Plan may reduce the monthly premium by $60 each month by completing the tobacco attestation, attesting to being tobacco-free, or committing to tobacco cessation counseling by the end of Open Enrollment.
  • The tobacco attestation premium credit activity has changed for tobacco users who want to reduce their monthly premium. Now, tobacco users must commit to visit a CVS Minute Clinic for at least one tobacco cessation counseling session within 90 days after the last day of Open Enrollment or risk losing the monthly premium credit.
  • The 80/20 Plan’s out-of-pocket maximum has changed from a separate medical and pharmacy out-of-pocket amount to a combined medical and pharmacy out-of-pocket maximum, which totals $4,890.
  • The 80/20 Plan’s specialist and inpatient hospital copay.

NCFlex Changes and Reminders:

  • The Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA's) require re-enrollment every year. If you want to participate in either or both of the FSA's, you must make your election during Open Enrollment.
  • The annual contribution for the Health Care Flexible Spending Account (FSA) is $2,650 for 2019.
  • During Open Enrollment, you may enroll or increase your Cancer and Specified Disease Insurance coverage without providing Evidence of Insurability (EOI).
