This bill was filed jointly in the House and Senate.
This bill would clarify and make administrative changes to the NC State Health plan for teachers and state employees. It would require individual retirees to pay the balance of the total premiums not paid by the state, unless it is prohibited by law. The bill defines the total premium as “the sum of the Plan’s total employer premium contribution rate plus the employee or retirees’ contribution for individual and dependent coverage.”
The bill also clarifies that children born to covered employees shall be covered at the time of birth.
The bill adds the opportunity for up to 50 percent of any unencumbered balance remaining for uncured, but unrepresented claims to be set aside by the State Treasurer.
