Individual Health Insurance in North Carolina (NC)

Individual health insurance can be denied to you because of a health problem by all individual insurers except Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina which must guarantee individual coverage. For HIPAA eligible people, insurance companies are required to offer two plans with good benefits and cannot impose exclusion periods; however, there are no limits put on the cost of the policy. In regard to pre-existing conditions, insurers are allowed to attach elimination riders. They can also impose exclusion periods of 12 month maximum length. In addition, any claims made in the first 24 months of coverage will allow the insurer to look back into the 12 months prior to coverage for pre-existing conditions related to the claim. If one is found through objective standards, they can refuse to pay the claim. There are no limits on the cost of an individual policy or on renewals. However, it cannot be cancelled due to illness.
