Question: Adult lives approx. half the year in California and the other half in North Carolina. Currently has coverage in California but needs to see doctors in North Caroline as well while there. Do you have coverage for this?


Answer: You could qualify for a special enrollment period in North Carolina if you claim NC as your home address. If so, select Blue Cross Blue Shield of NC PPO coverage (once you confirm that they offer Blue Card coverage outside of NC). You will be covered by in-network benefits while in California as long as you see a Blue Shield of California PPO network provider. If you want California based coverage, select Blue Shield of California PPO (only Blue Card in CA) coverage effective 1/1/15 during the next open enrollment period starting November 15th.
