Blue Cross: Feds OK plans for sale on NC exchange

Posted: Updated:
CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -

North Carolina's largest health insurance company says it has federal approval to start more than two dozen plans at different benefit levels on the online insurance marketplace going live next week.

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina said Thursday it received formal notification from the U.S. Health and Human Services Department that the plans will be available on the statewide health insurance exchange the federal agency will operate.

More than 1 million North Carolinians are expected to sign up for subsidized health insurance under the new federal law starting Tuesday. The state now has about 1.5 million lacking coverage.

The only other company selling coverage on North Carolina's exchange is Coventry Health Care of the Carolinas. It plans to offer plans in 39 rural and urban counties.
