RA-TA Health Insurance Plan

Only students eligible for the Graduate Student Support Plan are eligible for the NC State RA-TA health insurance plan. Please see your department Graduate Services Coordinator if you have questions about your eligibility or coverage period.

Student Blue (BCBS of NC) is the health insurance provider for the NC State Graduate Student Support Plan. Please contact them directly at 1-800-579-8022 regarding your health insurance benefits, dependent enrollment, and any other questions related to your health insurance policy. Please keep in mind that the Graduate School simply manages overall Graduate Student Support Plan eligibility and payment for the overall plan. The Graduate School is not involved, at all, after a student is no longer covered under the Graduate Student Support Plan.

Health insurance coverage on the NC State RA-TA plan typically starts on the following dates each semester. Please speak with your department Graduate Services Coordinator if you have questions about your health insurance start (or end) date.

Fall 20xx: August 1st – December 31st
Spring 20xx: January 1st – July 31

We encourage students to register for Blue Connect once they have received their health insurance information from Student Blue (Subscriber & Group numbers). Student Blue Member Services allows participants to manage their policy online, including reviewing claims and printing a temporary card.

If you need to retrieve your policy information (subscriber, group, pharmacy bin numbers) because you did not receive your health insurance cards or they were lost or stolen, please contact Student Blue customer service at 1-800-579-8022. The Graduate School does not keep record of individual subscriber numbers.

Please be sure to keep your mailing address updated in MyPack Portal and with Student Blue (1-800-579-8022). Your mailing address in MyPack Portal is transmitted to Student Blue for your enrollment in the GSSP health insurance plan at the beginning of each spring and fall semester.
