BC/BC appeals state plan to switch to Aetna for health insurance plan for public employees
Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina has formally appealed the decision by the health insurance plan for public employees to choose another company to administer the plan after more than 40 years.
The State Health Plan's trustee board voted last month to replace Blue Cross with Aetna starting in 2025.
Blue Cross filed on Thursday its request for a protest meeting with the State Health Plan's acting director. His final decision could be challenged in court.
The third-party administrator's job involves handling billions of dollars in plan members' claims and building out a provider network.
