Am I eligible?

Healthy Blue eligibility

Medicaid helps low-income individuals and families get health care benefits and long-term services and supports for those who need them. North Carolina Health Choice (NCHC) is a health insurance program for children of families who make too much to qualify for Medicaid, but too little to afford private insurance.

Healthy Blue is a health plan that serves North Carolina Medicaid members. We help coordinate and manage your health care needs.

You or a family member might be eligible if you:

  • Live in North Carolina and are a U.S. citizen or documented non-U.S. citizen
  • Meet income and resource guidelines
  • Are in one of these groups:
    • Pregnant women
    • Children under age 21
    • Low-income individuals and families
    • Adults age 65 or older
    • Individuals with disabilities
You can check your eligibility online through the NC Medicaid website.
