Rep. Verla Insko (D-Orange Co.) joins Chris Fitzsimon in the studio this weekend to discuss budget woes, the restoration of mental health funding, and House Bill 1730 [1].

The bill authorizes North Carolina to contract with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to administer the newly created federal high risk health insurance pool.

Insko, who is a primary sponsor of the legislation, says federal subsidies will enable the state to offer reduced premiums for those who rely on Inclusive Health. She predicts that change alone will make the state program more affordable for many more North Carolinians with pre-existing conditions.
