2021 Open Enrollment 

Open Enrollment is your opportunity to review your benefit elections and make changes for the upcoming 2021 plan year. All members of the State Health Plan must take action during Open Enrollment in order to reduce monthly premiums. You may make State Health Plan and NCFlex changes through the online enrollment system located at the orange button above, or by calling the enrollment center at 855-859-0966.

Be sure to review the online tutorials and attend a Zoom session detailing changes for next year. If you need help enrolling, call 855-859-0966 to enroll over the phone.

Our goal is to have 100% of faculty and staff complete the Open Enrollment process.  Open Enrollment ends October 31, 2020, without exception.

Find an In-Network Provider: When using an in-network provider, your out-of-pocket expenses, deductibles and coinsurance responsibility will be lower than if you use out-of-network providers. An in-network provider is one contracted with the State Health Plan to provide services to plan members for specific pre-negotiated rates. Out-of-network providers do not have these contracted rates, therefore your expenses will be higher.
