Pat McCrory on Health Care


Healthy NC reform: controls costs & incentivizes providers

And the fourth focus will be healthcare. Our customer-first philosophy must translate into a "Patients First" philosophy for healthcare, as well. We hear from patients that health care is too hard to navigate.

Our reform plan--under our Healthy NC initiative--was developed in partnership with doctors, patients and healthcare providers across the state. This is physician-led reform. As part of this plan healthcare providers will share in the responsibility for reducing costs by avoiding unnecessary use of services and working to keep people healthy and out of the emergency room.

Our Healthy NC reform plan puts patients first and controls costs for taxpayers, and incentivizes health care providers to coordinate care. North Carolina's health care community has a long history of solving problems. Let's empower them to keep us healthy, and continue to make North Carolina an excellent place to practice medicine and produce new discoveries in treatment.

Reform Medicaid based on NC plan, not DC plan

Now last session, we came close to passing Medicaid reform, but progress stalled on the 1-yard-line. Let's not take another pass this year. Let's run it up the middle and win a victory for families across North Carolina. As we review continue to review health care options for the uninsured, we are exploring North Carolina-based options that will help those who can't help themselves, and encourage those who can. If we bring a proposal to cover the uninsured, it will protect North Carolina taxpayers. And any plan will require personal and financial responsibility from those who would be covered. I will only recommend a North Carolina--not a Washington-- plan, so that we can put patients first!
