Five Health Plan Options for Medicare Primary Members

The State Health Plan is offering five health plan options for our Medicare Primary members in 2015. These plans include:

  • The Traditional 70/30 Plan, which is administered through Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina
  • Group Medicare Advantage Plan options – offered through Humana and UnitedHealthcare – which include benefits and services such as access to the SilverSneakers Fitness Program, a nurse help line and disease and case management services

These are the same options that were available to you last year.

Enhanced Plan Options

In addition to a Medicare Advantage Base Plan, each carrier offers an Enhanced Plan, which provides a higher level of coverage and requires a monthly premium. The Traditional 70/30 Plan will continue to be available with no premium required for retirees. All five plans include prescription drug coverage.

As a reminder, if you are satisfied with the plan in which you are currently enrolled, no action is required.
