NC Governor signs bill that affects hospital billing
RALEIGH, N.C. — Gov. Pat McCrory signed legislation into law Wednesday that he said will help North Carolina consumers make better health care decisions and aid his administration in running state government more efficiently. The bill, one of more than 30 left on his desk this week after lawmakers adjourned late last month, addresses both hospital billing procedures and changes to state employee personnel rules. The health care billing standards, which had been in a stand-alone measure until it was attached to the state personnel bill late in the session, requires hospitals statewide to report the amount charged for the 100 most frequent reasons for admissions.
