Coronavirus COVID-19 Information for
Asheville and Western North Carolina
It’s more important than ever to have health insurance now. We can help.
We here at WNC Health Insurance want you to know that we genuinely care about you and all North Carolinians during this time of crisis. COVID-19 is affecting most of us in some ways, and some of us in drastic ways. We are here for you.

Huge portions of North Carolinians are being laid off from work, and are losing their employer-supported health insurance. Though COBRA is an option, there is a much better choice! We can get you health insurance that will last longer, cost less, and serve you better, than COBRA. We have the answers! Call us right away to learn more, at (828) 348-2583.
Losing your job is one of the Qualifying Life Events that opens a Special Enrollment Period (SEP) for you, during which you can obtain quality health insurance at an affordable cost. But HURRY – you only have a 60-day window! Almost everyone qualifies for the extraordinary government subsidies that make buying health insurance extremely affordable. Some people find that these subsidies can provide them with health insurance at zero cost!
When you shop for health insurance with our help, we’ll make sure that the plan you buy will cover Coronavirus testing for zero cost and zero co-pay. It’s also important that your health insurance covers you and everyone on your plan, for medical expenses related to COVID-19.
For example, BlueCross BlueShield of North Carolina® covers diagnostic testing for COVID-19 at no cost share with members, and prior authorization is waived for medically necessary services for members with COVID-19. In addition, they have waived early medication refill limits on prescriptions.
If you suspect you have the Coronavirus and need help to get a diagnosis or treatment, there is a link to Teledoc (for remote doctor visits) at our website under MORE. (If you experience a medical emergency, dial 911.)
