2023 Benefit Information: Active Members

2023 Benefit Information: Active Members

For 2023, the State Health Plan will continue to offer two Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) plans administered through Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina (Blue Cross NC). They are the Base PPO Plan (70/30) and the Enhanced PPO Plan (80/20). 

All members will be automatically enrolled in the Base PPO Plan (70/30), which will have an $85 employee-only premium. You can reduce this premium by $60 to a $25 employee-only premium by completing the tobacco attestation during Open Enrollment.

Members who wish to enroll in the Enhanced PPO Plan (80/20) or who wish to reduce their monthly premium in either the Enhanced PPO Plan (80/20) or the Base PPO Plan (70/30) by completing the tobacco attestation will need to TAKE ACTION during Open Enrollment, which will be held October 10-28, 2022. 

Please note: Although the 80/20 and 70/30 plan names have changed, these are still the same plans offered previously to State Health Plan members.

(With Credit)





    • If you combine your tobacco cessation visit with another service, there may be a copay.
    • Even if you completed the tobacco attestation during last year’s Open Enrollment, you must make a new attestation during this year’s Open Enrollment period to receive the $60 premium credit for the 2023 Plan benefit year.
    • After you visit a provider for your tobacco cessation session, the provider will submit a claim on your behalf. To ensure you receive credit for your visit, you should upload your office visit summary to the “Document Center” located in eBenefits, the Plan’s enrollment system. Make sure to request a copy of your visit summary during your counseling session.

    Pharmacy Resources

    CVS Caremark is the State Health Plan’s Pharmacy Benefit Manager.

    The State Health Plan utilizes a custom, closed formulary (drug list). The formulary indicates which drugs are excluded from the formulary and not covered by the Plan. All other drugs that are on the formulary are grouped into tiers. Your medication’s tier determines your portion of the drug cost.

    These documents and tools include information based on the 2022 formulary and are subject to change prior to January 1, 2023.
