Background on H655 - NC Health Care for Working Families
The NC Health Care for Working Families Act, HB655, is a new bill to bring affordable health care to hard-working North Carolinians in all 100 counties. This is a bipartisan, North Carolina solution filed by conservative legislators, to close the health insurance coverage gap.
Extending coverage to low-income families would have positive benefits for everyone in North Carolina, not just those who gain coverage, most of all by reducing the cost of healthcare for everyone. Evidence from other states shows that H655 has the potential to increase the rate of infants who survive to their first birthdays, make it possible for more people to get treatment and recover from substance use, and strengthen family finances.
While this bill includes elements that will prevent some people from enrolling and staying enrolled, it is a pragmatic proposal for closing the healthcare coverage gap that can gain traction on both sides of the aisle. Now we need our leaders from both parties to come together on a compromise that will get affordable, quality health care to the greatest possible number of uninsured people in North Carolina, in the most cost-effective way possible.
