The State Health Plan offers a wide range of health benefits to all eligible state employees, teachers, retirees and other individuals identified in the North Carolina General Statutes.
The State Health Plan offers four health plan designs for its members -- please see the State Health Plan plans for active employees overview page for more information.
In addition to the State Health Plan, you have 30 days to decide on optional insurance coverage available to you. If you choose not to enroll within 30 days, you will not have another opportunity to get the coverage until the next “Open Enrollment Period” for all employees which usually runs from October through November each year (specific dates may vary).
Your HR representative will give you some information to look over on each optional insurance program that will include:
If you decide to enroll in any of these programs, the premium amount will be deducted each month from your paycheck. Some of the programs are covered under the NC Flex program that allows your premiums to be taken from your gross salary that is not taxed (saving you money). (See the NC Flex section for more information.)
If you are covered by insurance from a previous state job, talk to your HR representative about options for keeping this insurance or switching coverage.
