Sen. Josh Stein – Reducing Health Care Costs and Improving the System

NC Senator Josh Stein got his bill through the NC Senate last week establishing a framework for comparative effectiveness health care research in North Carolina. This will ultimately improve care and has the potential to drastically cut health care costs. In fact, if enacted, the bill would put NC out in front in the national and state health reform effort to reduce health care costs. The bill now goes to the NC House.
