Domestic Partner Benefits
Appalachian State University offers certain domestic partner benefits to the faculty and staff at ASU. For benefits currently being offered please see the information below.
Future benefits are anticipated to be added so please check back routinely for updates and information alerts.
The North Carolina State Health Plan does not currently allow Domestic Partners to be covered for major medical benefits. Individual policies may be issued through other insurance carriers such as Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina. To obtain a quote from BCBSNC please visit their web site at www.bcbsnc.com.
