Annual Member Mailing Begins This Week


Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina (BCBSNC) will begin mailing an informational postcard on November 7 to approximately 510,000 commercial subscribers. Titled "How Your Insurance Works," this mailing will direct members to an online resource (also available in Spanish) that includes a downloadable PDF where they can learn about their rights as a member, as well as how to get the most out of their insurance benefits. Topics include:

  • Your Member Rights and Responsibilities
  • Preventive Care and Why It's Important
  • How To Obtain A Copy of Our Privacy Notice
  • Protecting Your Well-Being
  • The Appeals Process
  • Official Notice of Mastectomy Benefits
  • What Is Utilization Management
  • Recent Accomplishments and Improvements
  • Contact Information
  • How To Get Information In Spanish

In order to reduce printing and mailing costs, the postcard replaces the previous "Guide to a Healthier You" annual member publication, while still enabling us to meet NCQA requirements regarding annual notification to members of their rights and how to use them.
