NC lawmakers push bill to reveal hospital costs

News & Observer / Associated Press, March 28, 2013

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Two state lawmakers introduced legislation Wednesday that's designed to help patients in North Carolina find the best prices on medical procedures. Sens. Bob Rucho, R-Mecklenburg, and Harry Brown, R-Onslow, issued a statement saying the goal is to improve medical billing transparency, reduce health care costs and help consumers make better-informed decisions about their treatment. "North Carolinians are faced with having more of their paychecks going toward health insurance premiums and more of their tax dollars funding Medicaid services," Rucho said. "They deserve to know and understand what they are paying for - and to make informed choices about their care."
