NC Physicians Urge Lawmakers to Expand Medicaid

RALEIGH – Yesterday, Governor Cooper hosted a roundtable with obstetricians and pediatricians from across the state who later visited lawmakers to call for Medicaid expansion for the 500,000 North Carolinians who would benefit.

Last month, the State Port Pilot highlighted a similar roundtable event where rural hospital executives and Governor Cooper discussed the importance of Medicaid expansion as a means to benefit both the financial health of hospitals and patient health.

Also last month, NCDP asked the below question (and will continue to ask until Dan Forest answers):

Will Dan Forest stand with North
Carolina physicians 
and the majority
of North Carolinians who 
Medicaid expansion?
