WakeMed and Duke Health to the Rescue


0 Comment

WakeMed and Duke Health get that health insurance sucks so they’re getting together to provide a new insurance plan to cover lots of locals who would have to change their doc next year when Blue Cross Blue Shield ends one of its plans  The plan is called Ambetter of NC and it’s the largest carrier on the Affordable Care Act marketplace and one of the country’s biggest providers of healthcare for military families. Premiums aren’t set yet, waiting for the head honchos at the Department of Insurance to approve it, but officials at WakeMed and Duke promise to be competitive with Blue Cross rates. Blue Local is the plan being nixed by Blue Cross at the end of the year, forcing their clients to have to change over to UNC doctors. We all know how the Dukies feel about that!
