North Carolina Health Care Laws
The Affordable Care Act (ACA) changed the way insurance is accessed in all states, putting in place rules and limitations for both health insurance providers and their customers. Health insurance was more of a state concern prior to the ACA, but states, including North Carolina, still have the authority to pass laws and regulations affecting health care. For instance, North Carolina law doesn't permit euthanasia, but does allow for the withholding of artificial life support under certain conditions. Other state health care laws address matters such as access to reproductive health services and power of attorney.
