The extended deadline to join was August 5, 2019. If you would like to rescind your participation in the North Carolina State Health Plan Network and revert to the Blue Options contract, please send a copy of your signature page to NCSHPNetworkContracts@bcbsnc.com by 12 a.m. (midnight), August 15, 2019.
To provide members with access to an adequate number of in-network hospitals, the Plan has decided to offer members a network that includes a combination of both the NC State Health Plan Network and the Blue Cross NC Blue Options PPO Network. If you agreed to join the NC State Health Plan Network and submitted your signature page for processing, you will be reimbursed at the rates outlined in that contract beginning with services provided on January 1, 2020 and after.
Since this approach is different than what was anticipated at the time that you signed the contract for the NC State Health Plan Network, the Plan would like to give your organization the opportunity to withdraw your signature page and go back to the rates that your organization negotiated with Blue Cross NC as part of our Blue Options PPO Network. It will be up to your organization to decide which option is best for you.
If you decide to stay in the Clear Pricing Project structure, Blue Cross NC will execute the signature page, at which point the contract will become binding for the period January 1, 2020, to December 31, 2020. After this initial one-year period, you may choose to leave the NC State Health Plan Network with 180 days’ notice.
If your organization would like to rescind its signature page and move back to the Blue Options PPO Network rates that you negotiated with Blue Cross NC, please send an email indicating you would like to rescind your participation and attach the signature page you previously submitted to NCSHPNetworkContracts@bcbsnc.com by 12 a.m. (midnight), August 15, 2019.
