A committee in the state House of Representatives is recommending a plan to reform Medicaid insurance for people who are poor or disabled.
The proposal says a majority of Medicaid patients would be treated by providers who receive a fixed amount of money per patient.
The governor’s office shows support for the bill. Health and Human Services Secretary Aldona Wos praised it in a committee hearing Thursday.
"We are very pleased with the House bill that it closely aligns with Gov. McCrory's medicaid reform plan," Wos said.
