Gov. Bev Perdue announced Thursday that North Carolina would establish a health care exchange in partnership with the federal government.
“North Carolina is moving forward with implementing a process that provides much needed health insurance for every citizen,” Perdue said in a statement. “It is critical for our state to participate in decisions that affect our state’s citizens. We will not cede total control to the federal government. It remains my goal to pursue a state-based plan.”
