NCMS: BCBSNC Issues Letter in Support of SAVE Act
September 14, 2021
To keep you fully informed about our work on your behalf at the NC General Assembly, we are sharing a letter Blue Cross and Blue Shield of NC sent to legislative leadership voicing support for SB249/HB277 the SAVE Act. The NCMS opposes this proposed legislation, which would grant independent practice to ‘advanced practice registered nurses.’ The NCMS along with a large group of specialty and county medical societies have consistently opposed the SAVE Act, and, in response to Blue Cross and Blue Shield’s letter, again reminded legislative leaders, chairs of the House and Senate Health Committees and other key legislators of our opposition. Read our sign-on letter here. If your specialty or county society is not yet included on this letter, please reach out to NCMS Director of Legislative Relations Sue Ann Forrest, MPA, to be included.
We continue to engage with and educate legislators on our position and will be sure to let you know if we need you, our NCMS members, to reach out directly to your representatives on this issue.
