N.C. Gov. Perdue takes a step ahead on exchanges

Outgoing Governor Bev Perdue today announced that North Carolina will move ahead with a federal/state partnership model for a health insurance exchange under the Affordable Care Act.

Perdue, a Democrat, said she consulted with Republican Gov.-elect Pat McCrory and chose a state-federal partnership to operate the health insurance exchange required by the Affordable Care Act….

This provides flexibility for the Gov. elect Pat McCrory and the General Assembly to keep the partnership, move toward a fully state run exchange, or revert to a federally run one.

“This decision allows him (McCrory) the opportunity to then, in his own good time, make a decision that will be permanent for the state,” Perdue said.

I am writing a series of posts on the move toward implementing the health reform law in North Carolina.
