RALEIGH — The North Carolina General Assembly had a busy final week.  Most of the work for the 2022 legislative short session ended on Friday, July 1. The adjournment resolution reconvenes the legislature on July 26 for two days and allows the General Assembly to return once each month for the remainder of the year.

What does that mean for healthcare in North Carolina?  Well, as North Carolina Medical Society CEO Chip Baggett explains, “our members were right in the midst of everything, now it’s touch and go from here on out.  I’m not sure what it’s going to be, but we’ll be there for it.”

His breakdown of the short session simplifies what happened so far, the latest on Medicaid expansion, and what NCMS members can expect over the coming months.
