PROJECT HCNC STATEMENT OF PURPOSE

We are committed to the availability of affordable Health Care coverage for low income North Carolinians, which is essential for effective long-term treatment of addiction disorders and control of our rampant opioid epidemic. We support legislation that will elicit support from both Republicans and Democrats so that it can receive bipartisan approval from both chambers of the NCGA and from the Governor. This may require that the legislation 1) be independent of state budgetary support, 2) have insurance-like features such as premiums, co-pays, and comprehensive benefits (including strong behavioral and mental health coverage on par with physical health coverage), and 3) include some limitations on eligibility such as work and personal responsibility requirements. The legislation submitted to the NC House in March 2017 (HB 662, Carolina Cares) represents a possible model for this legislation and is similar to the program created by then-Governor Mike Pence in Indiana.
