New Coalition for Responsible Health Care announced

Individuals and small businesses in NC deserve a new competitive health care marketplace (health exchange) under health reform that encourages real competition, has easy to understand insurance plan choices on a website like Travelocity or Consumer Reports, and doesn’t allow health insurance companies on its governing board.  That’s what this new coalition is all about.  More organizations are joining every day according to CRHC spokesperson Abby Emanuelson of the MS Society of NC at a press conference announcing the formation of the coalition.

See the Coalition’s two guiding principles and list of member organizations so far.

See WRAL’s story from today about the new coalition.

Watch WTVD-11 tonight for more coverage.

    I have been tweeting #rhr for 2 years. Don’t forget insurance does not equate to medical care. I have been an advocate for responsible health reform in NC and continue to be! I had no job and cancer (a pre existing condition). NC has high risk pool for that purpose!
