HORRY COUNTY, S.C. -

The South Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (SCDHHS) has approved BlueChoice® HealthPlan Medicaid's request to expand its Medicaid managed care coverage area to include Horry County.

Starting Aug. 15, Medicaid-eligible residents of Horry County may select BlueChoice® Medicaid as their coverage option for traditional Medicaid services and the many additional benefits offered by BlueChoice.

Enrollees will have access to BlueChoice Medicaid's extensive provider network, which in Horry County includes 95 primary care and 268 specialty care providers as well as four area hospitals — Conway Medical Center, Grand Strand Regional Medical Center, McLeod Loris Hospital and McLeod Seacoast Hospital.

"BlueChoice Medicaid has worked hard to develop a network of quality health care providers in Horry County. We look forward to serving eligible Horry County residents who want better coordination of care, as well as extras such as a 24-hour nurse line and wellness programs," said Scott Graves, president and COO of BlueChoice HealthPlan.

SCDHHS administers the state's Medicaid managed care program. Residents who establish Medicaid eligibility with the agency may elect to receive their benefits through a managed care plan offered by a private sector company such as BlueChoice.

To speak to a Medicaid enrollment counselor, call 1-877-552-4642. To get information about the added benefits BlueChoice HealthPlan Medicaid offers, call 1-800-574-8864.
