    Hi. Just want to see if anyone that was on the bcbsnc local plan with duke/wakemed this year has found anything comparable for 2019? We do not want to lose our specialists for our children that we have been seeing for 10 years at Duke. The only plans I can find for Johnston County residents only includes UNC as in network. I have looked at plans through the ACA and individual plans outside of it.We do not have access to a corporate plan, and we looked into ambetter but they do not cover johnston county. Just thought I would reach out to fellow Johnston county people to see if anyone had any better ideas. Thanks in advance for any help.

    Except when the private companies decide to change their network like they do all of the time.

    I had the opportunity to speak with an agent that had information on the new policy being brought out that covers Duke. Based on the older BCBS policies that had Duke in the network rather than UNC there is a huge difference. The new UNC only BCBS policies are cheaper than before. The similar old BCBS policies with Duke are almost double the cost with the new provider. What is now a ~$2000.00/month Silver policy with BCBS was ~$2400.00 previously and with the new provided is almost $4000.00 per year. Some of the new Duke plans will run from $6000.00 to $22,000.00 per year more than the comparable BCBS UNC plans. I suspect Duke will be negotiating a new BCBS policy network next year.
