Affordable Care Act now offers Insurance Exchanges. Learn more! Go to

The Affordable Care Act and Insurance Exchanges. Some of these new plans limit access to independant physicians or to specific hospital systems.  The high deductibles associated with these plans may allow you to see out-of-network providers since most people never reach their deductible limits (see our pricing HERE to help you understand what your actual cost would be at our practice). Be sure you understand the new plans before changing from a "grandfathered" plan. BCBS Blue Value Plan (Novant), BCBS Blue Local (Carolina's Healthcare), Coventry Carelink (Carolina's Healthcare - we are tier 2), and Aetna's Leap (Carolina's Healthcare - we are tier 2) restrict your access to a smaller network of providers.  These restrictive networks do not prevent you from being seen by our practice but may cost you more.  Look at the plan's deductable and see if it matters - our typical patient does not spend more than $400 a year on services provided by our practice.  We will file your insurance and comply with all of the in-network requirements of your plan if we must send you out. 

Other good news is that United Healthcare is still offering a HIE plan called UHC Compass.   Our practice is in network with this plan which means you will not be restricted to only the hosptial based Primary Care doctors in this new HIE offering.  You may also find insurance plans thru your employer or other health insurance vendors.
