Statement from Treasurer Dale R. Folwell, CPA, Regarding the Governor’s Proposal to Lessen the Burden of Medical Debt for North Carolinians

Raleigh, NC
Jul 1, 2024

We are glad that the Department of Health and Human Services and the governor have finally recognized my pro-family initiative to help prevent medical debt from decimating the finances of North Carolina families. The best and most simple way that our new allies can be helpful in this fight is to immediately support the Medical Debt De-Weaponization Act that passed the Senate unanimously and is only one vote short from passing the House. We encourage DHHS and the governor to convince the hospital association to drop their opposition to this pro-consumer legislation.
