BCBSNC Health Insurance Information

2016 - 2017 Insurance Updates

 

Dear Student:

The University of North Carolina system has made some changes to our Student Health Insurance Program for 2016 - 2017. Student Blue, underwritten by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina (BCBSNC), will be the insurance vendor on all 16 UNC campuses. Our partnership with Student Blue will include:

  • Comprehensive health insurance benefits and services
  • Quick and easy online enrollment and waiver process.
  • Anytime access to benefit information from your laptop, tablet or smartphone
  • Extraordinary customer service for students, parents and campus staff
  • Peace-of-mind with the BlueCross brand and the largest provider network in North Carolina meant to complement the care provided on-campus at the Health & Counseling Center

Please note the following:

  • Students who are degree seeking and taking 6 or more credit hours are required to have health insurance to attend a UNC system school. Students with existing health insurance coverage can waive out of the school insurance plan.
  • Students must enroll in or waive out of the coverage no later than January 31, 2017. Visit studentbluenc.com/#/unca to start the process. Students who do not submit an approved waiver and have not enrolled themselves in the program will be enrolled automatically.
  • Students who have existing family or individual coverage through another Blue Cross Blue Shield plan must complete the enrollment/wavier process as well. Students who are covered under a different health insurance plan are welcome to consider Student Blue.
