Letter to Governor, GA Leadership: No Rush Needed on H115 (Health Benefit Exchange) Bill

Today a number of major consumer groups including AARP North Carolina, the NC Justice Center, The National Multiple Sclerosis Society – North Carolina Chapters, the American Cancer Society and others sent a letter to Governor Perdue, Speaker Tillis, and Senate President Berger.

The letter expresses grave concerns about the health benefit exchange bill moving through the NC General Assembly — including the bill’s new tax on individuals and small businesses and the fact that the bill will allow insurance companies to regulate themselves.  The groups are asking the state to “move slowly and get it right” rather than enact a bill that “does not provide consumer protections or promote greater competition.”

    Grave concerns is an understatement.
