BCBSNC implements health reform provision ahead of schedule

As of July 1st, BCBSNC will remove the pre-existing condition waiting period for all group members under the age of 19 regardless of when they enrolled. This change applies to eligible services received on or after July 1, 2010. There is no rate impact due to this change.

BCBSNC will be mailing letters this week to approximately 2,200 impacted groups (those with members who will have their pre-existing waiting period removed) to inform them of the change. Groups are encouraged to share this information with their employees.
