In an OpEd originally published in the North State Journal, Wake County Chair Travis Groo makes the case against new proposed health care legislation, HB 246. Groo argues that, while this bill is relatively low-profile in current public discourse, its impact would be significant, even compared to other legislation that gets more press. He highlights restrictive clauses in the bill that limit patient and provider options in choosing where and how they get their prescription drugs. Particularly against a backdrop of exploding health care costs, he argues strongly against government interference that chooses winners while driving up out-of-pocket expenses for North Carolinians, already cash strapped with property tax increases and inflation.
