Save Money with BCBSNC Catastrophic Plans

Monday, November 17th, 2014

Young study groupBlue Cross Blue Shield of NC offers catastrophic plans to eligible customers as a lower cost, minimum coverage option. Qualified customers can save as much as 22% by selecting a catastrophic plan over BCBSNC’s least expensive bronze plan.

To be eligible for a catastrophic plan, you must meet one of the following criteria:

•Be under 30 years of age when the plan year begins

•Qualify for a hardship exemption through the federal government

BCBSNC Catastrophic plans cover preventive care at 100% and include $35 copayments for your first 3 visits to an in-network primary care provider. These plans have high deductibles that you must meet before BCBSNC pays for Essential Health Benefits. A catastrophic plan may be a good option if you don’t expect to have many medical expenses.

 

Catastrophic plans cover the Essential Health Benefits as well. These essential health benefits include:

  • Ambulatory services
  • Emergency services
  • Hospitalization
  • Maternity and newborn care
  • Mental health and substance abuse services (including behavioral health)
  • Prescription drugs
  • Rehabilitative and habilitative services and devices
  • Laboratory services
  • Preventive/wellness services and chronic disease management
  • Pediatric services, including dental and vision

Keep in mind, if you choose a catastrophic plan, you cannot use an advance premium tax credit (federal subsidy). If you don’t qualify for or decide to forego a subsidy, you may save money with these plans.
