This bill came about through the rules that the hospitals made about having no visitors when you were sick in the hospital. They can still come when their Children, um, adult can be with him. But to have your husband there or your wife there in the hospital and you cannot visit them at all is very nerve ing. I just want to tell you a short brief. What happened to me? My husband, um, had a heart attack on Memorial Day, and we ended up flying him with a helicopter to Asheville Mission Hospital on. I did speak with the doctor that day. We were allowed to call a phone number, and he would give us the information if if he was going to make it or if how he was doing when he got out of surgery. So, um, that day I spoke to him the rest of the time. We had to send up keys, telephone? We couldn't bring it. He didn't have his phone. Now imagine when you're getting in in an ambulance. You don't think about these many things, but you don't think Well, I have to have my fun with May because you're going in for, ah, heart attack, but that doesn't you know, or or a phone cord to Georgia to charge it? Eso He didn't have a telephone, but he remembered my son's thumb number and he called him and Brian called me and told me to pick Daddy's phone up to him in the hospital. So I took it to the front desk and dropped it off, and they carried it up. Four days later, after I couldn't see him, I had talked with him on the phone. But four days later, on Thursday, he was released. Normally they release around 11 o'clock, so I'm in early person. I got there about 10 and I sat in the parking lot and I thought 11 12 1 No problem. I I really wasn't too concerned because he was coming home and I was happy. He calmly well, as in a parking lot, he said them well. The doctor gets came in, and he said to be home, but only have 25% of my heart working Now that it gets to you, you've got to him and it got to me and I couldn't be up there if you know, May IVs out the parking lot and it's boring to death. And so I went around to some of the people that were there and spoke with them and talked with Mila. Wow! And these two did to the treks. They looked like Duck Dynasty with Big Bear Gym, and I started talking to him and the one his wife was up there and she was dying and he couldn't be with her at all. The other one asked me how what I was, therefore not. I told him about Keith having a heart attack and and he said, Darling pasted. You don't have to worry About 25% said, I'm sitting right here today. I drive a bulldozer every day. Just what I got Keith off of when he went to the doctor to the hospital and he said, I'm sitting right here right now with 25% of my heart working, and he said, I work every day. Oh, I was surprised. I thought, Oh my gosh, you know because I thought, How am I gonna care for Keith? With only 25% of his heart working, they made me feel a bit better. And he said Normal is 54 to 70%. So us sitting here, our hearts are not 100% right now. Normal is 54 to 70% and athletes heart is at 45%. The doctor didn't tell. Keep that. I found that out from two guys out in the parking lot. I don't think that's right. I should have been able that the one thing and he did. So we're going to send you home with a life vest. Eso come to find out. I've never heard of a life vest. Many of you in here. If not, I'm sure it's a It's a piece of elastic about that wide, and it goes around you. But on the back, it has little modules goes and it tells your blood pressure and all this kind of stuff on it. And so he was. They were sent him home with that, said the girl that came in to hooking up and measure and make sure that life vest was the right size. She said Ah Kee. So so what happens is this is what this is is a defibrillator on the outside of your body. Sochi said. So if I was to follow and have a heart attack, then it will kick me, right? She said, Yep. But don't let your wife touch you, because you she will get electrocuted. This. I mean, no, no, I have nothing. You know, I'm no medical experience whatsoever. And so I didn't know about all this. And so, um, wait. As so we went home, By the way, I didn't leave the hospital till 6 15 that night. I sat out in the parking lot the whole entire time. I went to the bathroom once or twice. Um so when we got home, I said So what happens if you have a heart attack and the thing kicks you? Does it automatically call 9110? You had automatically calls what? I thought, you know, I'm going to check on that because that made me very nervous. So I checked on it. No, it does not call 911 He said he thought that the doctor told him that that would but it will not. So I had to get someone to stay with him. I missed the first week went down here, but I came back the second week and I got people to come and stay every day with him during the day. But he was I mean, I could go to burn Banham Scheffer wherever they wanted to, you know, during the day. But, um, it's very unnerving. Win that you can't. You've got to have somebody with you all the time. My kids spent the night every night is different all three times took turns staying the night with him while I was down here. And then during the day he was with friends and people. But when I'm trying to say is what I should have been allowed to go up there and get this kind of information directly. I bought. I bought. I've never eyeball this doctor. I don't even know his name. I just think it's wrong. I think when we go when we have loved ones that are going into a hospital for whatever reason, we should be able to go up there and and comfort them. I'm telling you, when Kates you told him he had 25% of his heart. He was not happy. He said this is worse than we thought. So that's what this bill is all about. But this bill did not come because of me. They were already working on this in the Senate because we've all had these conversations with people that have called it said we couldn't go to the hospital. We couldn't see your mother, and she was gonna pass away. And it just goes on and on, his very heart wrenching. So I appreciate you if you would vote for this bill. Thank you, gentlemen, from a down represented Dobbs, this recognized Thank you, Madam Speaker members. We're all familiar with this bill, so I'll just briefly explain it and let the debate play out. The bill was filed originally in the Senate to ensure that patients were ableto have a loved one with them while they received care at a hospital. Justice represented press now described The intent of the bill in the house is the same. The PCs ensures that patients are allowed their visitation rights and hospitals. The patient will be able to choose their visitor under this and hospitals are required to have written policies on their visitation. This bill was needed in order for the language to be in line with federal laws and regulations, while also ensure that patients had their right to a visitor. Under federal law, hospitals are allowed to respect visitors Onley In the case of infection control and safety issues, the PCs addresses that and clarifies the patient's rights to have a visitor while lining federal low and regulations for hospitals. Uh, members, I know that the Senate has their view, their members in this, this body that also has their view. My guess is it's going to go to conference and hopefully this could be resolved with something that we can all move forward together with. Thank you, Madam Speaker. For what purpose of gentleman from Paris represented. Pittman, Rise! Speak of the bill. You have the Florida speak on the bill. You don't have a favorite uncle. I had a favorite uncle. My Uncle John. My mom was younger brother. He was 88 years old. He died April 3rd this year and we didn't get to do the funeral until Sunday. Before last, he had heart problems and they put him into nursing home. He was there for a few weeks. None of the family could go in and be around him at all. Didn't get to see him except through the window. He finally had to put him in the hospital and he didn't think he's gonna last long. But my cousin John Mark is a very persistent Phil. But he kept after him and he kept after him until they finally agreed to allow John, Mark and my aunt Clearer, who has dimension. And she had a hard time dealing with all this to go up and see Uncle John, and they had him in there in the hospital. They were getting them all sterilized up and dressing them up like they were going to go in and perform surgery. And while they're getting all this done and still didn't get to see Uncle John, Uncle John died. I wish I could have gone to see, but could you? But his wife and son certainly should have been able to go see him. This wasn't caused by a virus. This was calls by one person's policies, and I knows those policies may be intended to save some lives, and that's important. But even when you're trying to save some lives, your policy should not be so heartless that you don't understand that family was somebody on the point of death need to be able to be with that person, So please pass this bill. What purpose of gentleman from pit represented? Jones rise Debate to debate the bill. You have a Florida big deal. Thank you. We're all aware that patient and family visitation rights are becoming increasingly important to the citizens of state of North Carolina. This bill helps to ensure has visitation rights while also taking into account the patient and facility factors necessary for our state bill to make smart save inpatient center decisions. I support this bill. Thank you for purposes. Gentleman from Hornet arrives for fluids for motion. Cinnamon has four from action.

Are you In my time of represented Dobson Representive Dobson, you're recognized. Thank you, Madam Speaker members, I'm not gonna need three minutes. This PCs ensures that patients are allowed their visitation rights and hospitals, and it conforms to federal law. I would urge your support the minority leader, which to speak for three minutes thinking about speaker ladies German. Very unfortunate on such an important issue, that debate gets canceled and that people who had their lights on the entire time weren't recognized because they had an amendment to run. Um, I would like to tell you that I support this bill in its current fashion. I was really glad to see when I got the PCs last night that at least the house members and the hospital Association that some of the providers were able to come to an agreement to do something reasonable, and so I support that. But next couple days will be very long people and trying to cooperate and add Bill Zone and things like that. But if you're gonna continue to not allow us to speak and call the previous question and not allow us to be having amendments or it's just gonna drag things on So with that Madam Speaker, I would no formally object The reading Third reading on this question for the houses. Passive house Bill 7 30 On its second reading, those in favour will vote I Those post will vote no corporal over the perhaps it develop trees That did I Speaker I Yeah, Lambeth I the opposite of our I rippers, innit? Of Sasser on the floor Representives After I Clark will lock on record 117 having been the affirmative and one in the negative Senate Bill 7 30 passes its second reading and having been objected to, well, mine on the calendar. Senate Bill 808 Circle read Senate this ground herring to Jackson Senate bill 18 08 A bullet to be entitled Medicaid Funding Act, Jill Some of nor clan annex. For what purpose does the lady from Mecklenburg. Upset of Cunningham arrives. Thank you, madam Chair. I was in the chamber and on the call. The question. I was no police. Thank you. Lady will be set recorded, isn't it? Hey, we have someone carrying Senate Bill paid away. Representive Dobson, you're recognized to speak on the deal. Thank you, Madam Speaker Members, this bill has had a lot of drafts. It is change significantly in this newest version that passed rules unanimously. I'll think you'll find it has changed for the good, with the things that are added and the things that have been taken out. Ah, lot of work from a lot of people. So if you'll indulge me for a minute, a bill of this magnitude, I want to think some people that have worked on this center brown center hice represented Lambeth, especially Secretary Cohen and Deputy Secretary Gross. All all of them have worked together to make this happen. Our staff have done a tremendous job on a bill like this. Amy Jo Johnson, Lisa Wilkes, Joyce Jones, Mark Collins, Jennifer Hillman and the whole team, the whole HHS team for putting this together. No bill happens, but certainly builds this like this don't happen without a lot of work. Big picture. For those of you who have seen this bill for the first time, the state of North Carolina decided in 2015 that we were going to move forward with managed care in 2018 working with Secretary Cohen, the Senate, the House, the governor Sund, and we solidified that that with House Bill four or three. The final step requires the General Assembly to appropriate the funds for this to happen. The fund that is in this bill. In addition to that, the re base for Medicaid is in this bill. So big picture, we have the Medicaid re base and we have transportation combined into this one bill. I want to hit the highlights of some things of concern and some things that have been added. Some things that have been taken away from this bill to make it a bill that each each party I think can live with. Ah, additional $100 million has been added for testing and tracing $20 million for child care both out of the cove in 19 funds. Ah, the D. The re determination peace in this bill has been amended or changed, too. Accommodate some of the concerns of each of your local DSS is across our state. The penalty was a concern for some in both both sides of the hour. That penalty has been taken out and finally, 30 million for NC fast to move forward as we move forward with transformation. That is the highlights, the big things in the bill. So I'll run down quickly. The parts of the bill that veteran question part one appropriates funds for planning purposes for the Dude Northey Addicts Relocation project with HHS and D o A. And they are instructed to select a suitable site in Wake County for the relocation project. That is a big thing for our state, and hopefully that puts this issue to bed once and for all. Part two deals with transformation Reserve transformation funds Pretty standard language. Part three. This is another, I think, critical part part three and part for we know how critical behavioral health is in this state. Within this bill, there's a net $20 million increase out the cove in 19 funds for our LME's for behavioral health services. Part five deals with managed care. Standard Standard language. Part six is the re determination language that we worked with DSS own. Section seven has a July 1 of 2021 start date. Governing is the art of compromise, and that's where we landed. That's why July 1st 2021 is the start date for Medicaid transformation. Some other critical Peter or some other pieces in there. Those are the highlights. There are two assessments in the bill. The hospital assessment that language has been agreed upon between the House, the Senate, the department and the Health Care Association. There's also the PHP assessment that was also part of 9 66 that passed this chamber. And also house put the House bill 5 55 that passed this chamber. So it's already been successfully voted on twice. Madam Speaker. That's the highlight of this very complicated bill. I would urge adoption. Thank you for purposes, gentlemen from orange trips into my rise. Thank you, Madam Speaker. I'd like to debate the bill. You have a Florida debate. Thank you. Represented Dobson. Thanks. Everyone else we worked on the bill, but I think we owe a huge debt of thanks to representative Dobson for working tirelessly to find this compromise and get us to this place. Well, I was trying to work on game making sure we had the tracing funds in the bill, which I'm very grateful that they're there. I can't tell you how many people said to me that they're so grateful for the work that he was doing on and how much they're going to miss him when he leaves this chamber at the end of this term. So I just want to say thank you, Representative Dobson as well or purpose. Gentlemen from first sight Representive, Lambeth Rouse, Debate the bill before a little bit of my thunder. I really wanted to stand up publicly and think Josh Dobson for the tremendous amount of work he's put into this not just this session, but over the last couple years. You know, this bill has been around for a while. It's time that we drive a stake in the sand and we set a date out there for transformation. This journey started way back with this body in 2014. It was passed in 2015. It's been a journey, and as a lot of people worked on this to make this happen. I just want to remind you what this bill does. It enables us to transform a Medicaid program that was broken for years and years constantly running over budget. There is no coordination of care in North Carolina for Medicaid patients, there's a bunch of silos and they do their own thing within our current rules. This moves mawr to a coordinated level of care. Folks working together for the betterment of the patient. It sets quality metrics, satisfaction goals. It will transform healthcare in North Carolina and Medicaid is gonna lead that effort. It will save money. But that's not really the purpose of this bill. My objective when we started this journey Waas simply to improve the quality of care for these patients. And this does that. I'd also add that sector. Cohen and her staff has put enormous amount of time in working with us to get this bill to this point. And Senator Heis and I think we all owe them a deep debt of gratitude for getting this bill to this point that it looks like it's gonna become reality and the governor will sign this bill Thank you, madam. Represented the representative from Wilson. Represented Farmer. Better feel for what purpose? Your eyes speak on the bill. You have the Florida speak on the bill. Thank you, Madam Speaker. Ladies and gentlemen, I want to say to you that this is a good day and a time when you find out that both sides of the aisle can come together and work together to make some positive changes as well as the executive branch of government. I love the fact that we were able to take the payments is out of this bill. And I want to think Representative Dotson and Lambert and all those who worked diligently only to be over the years. And I know what that went out. That the added monies for testing and tracing is gonna make a difference in our state. And I also want to say that it's gonna transform physical and behavior helped in North Carolina. So thank you for a positive vote. Yes, for purposes of lady from Randolph, obsessive Harley Rise for a question for represented not simply represented, Dobson. The Yield for a question thanks very much. And I am in favor of this bill and I want thank on everyone who worked on it. But my concern is in FY pan NC fast program, because we've seen millions on it before. We have toe right are we would be writing a new contract will be been our will it be like it is. Will somebody keep an eye on this, please? The short answer is these funds for the continuing operations of the system that we have part of that is part of transformation. There is an or if I to build upon that or see which direction that this body will need to g o after my time has passed. But as of now, this is just to support transformation and support. What's going on? In addition, there is an or if I were there, I would say that we're a long way down this road within see fast and as complicated is as difficult as it is, I do believe that for whatever it's worth, we do need to continue in the path that we're going try to fix it, try to make it better because of the consequences of what we would have if we had to return those funds to the federal government. That's a conversation I'd love to have in deeper with you. But that's kind of where we're at right now for purpose. Lady from Mecklenburg. Positive Cunningham. Arise. Thank you. Met him. Share. I would like to make a few remarks. You wish to speak on the bill? Yes. You have the floor. Thank you. Um, I would like Teoh come here, represented dots and and represented glamour as we worked with them on a covert committee. But, you know, there's an art to compromise. And when I pick up the phone and I called one of them, I get a response back. And if it's an issue that I totally don't agree with, I don't stop calling and represented. Let them know I won't stop calling until they found they call me. But it was time for this to happen. We waited and I spoke about the $650 million drought down for the healthy opportunities, which what happened when it goes live. Healthy opportunities was a federal grant that was awarded to the state of North Carolina. It was the only grand awarded, and lastly, we're the last state to move toward the Medicaid as well as do integrated healthcare and integrated health care not only looks at your physical, but it looks at your mental s well, so that combination is time to happen. Family, You know, what else say is that we've had companies here in North Carolina in place waiting. They've had to have staff in place waiting continued to prepare for us to move forward on Medicaid transformation. And it's time. And so I thank you, represent that I'm gonna miss you. But also the Department of Health and Human Services and all of our staff that continue to work at the art of compromise. And I think we're learning. Thank you. What purpose of gentleman from Cumberland represented? Richardson arrives. Representative Dobson. Quick question represented tops of the yield For a question yield to the Dobson in the spirit of compromise. I'm trying not often, Amendment, but you heard Dr Jones yesterday. Representive Jones. Talk about how important. And I'm calling your attention to Page three, B, B one and C, where it talks about the testing, the at risk populations in the Congress populations and how important that is. And I see it's got in there the testing. I see it's got in there to Tracy, but I don't see. And this is a critical part of the health. And what, and what represented John would say is the reporting. Could you assure me that in this legislation there's a requirement that this this information be reported? But to the to the researchers and to the public, I can theaters Yes, in in the First Cove it 19 bill that this body passed on a unanimous basis. There was 25 million appropriated to testing and reporting, and it specifically mentions reporting in that bill in that same language, I confirmed with staff applies to this Billa's well so testing, reporting, contact tracing is all part of that 100 million further discussion for the debate.

We dealt with both of those in rules this morning. They are both exactly the same bill. We're carrying it on the floor under to await the bills designed to provide immunity during the spring 2020 semester to North Carolina's institutions of higher education for claims related to tuition and fees related to Cove in 19 our institutions of higher education can assert this community if the alleged acts or omissions were reasonably related to protecting public health, safety or welfare in response to Cove in 19 executive orders or C. D. C guidance, and if the offer and if they also offered remote learning options for students to complete their spring semester coursework. Uh, this is very important bill for our institutions of higher education. And I request your support. Thank you. For what purpose does the gentleman from union represented?

Thank you, Dass. Bill, Sponsor question. Representive art was Gemma. Neil. Excuse me. Represent frail. He's a German. You? Yes, thank you. And represent freely. There was a good explanation today in the university education and I think just a have members aware a couple questions were asked that if there are pending class action lawsuits now in North Carolina yes, there are, in fact, the in ah rules. This morning it was mentioned that there were four against the U. N C system in one against Duke University. Since rules, we found out that the four against the individual UNC institutions have been dismissed and were immediately re filed against the entire system. Follow up, Question Germany also distant question heels. Thank you. And I know represent really You answer this question in committee, but I think it's important to hear there are concerns. And I think it's a bit of an unknown result with Law that this would apply retroactively to lawsuits that have already been filed. And I think he gave a good explanation. If you wouldn't mind doing that on the floor, yes, that it is correct that North Carolina law does not necessarily prohibit anything being retroactive. Uh, they're also in federal law. Things can be retroactive. So there is plenty of casework that staff went through this morning. I not being a lawyer can't cite all of that off top of my head. Uh, but the feeling from staff and in the rules committee this morning Ah, and also the people that worked on the bill from the higher education institutes felt that they were on solid ground on the retroactive part. Thank you, Mr Speaker, To speak on the bill. Lady has afford to bathe. Thank you. And I think with represent freely is good work. And his explanations help alleviate some of the concerns about the retroactive of this bill with current lawsuits. But I think it is a good bill to try to protect our universities. I commend it. Thank you. What purpose does the gentleman Roanne represent? A warren rise. Uh, ask this bill. Sponsor question. Wasn't friendly. Germany You? Yes, fields, resume friendly.

Yes, this year. Only on Lee to cover the spring semester of 2020. The thought processes that anything going forward from that period of time, any contracts that you would have, whether the room and board tuition fees or whatever will cover the fact that there could be more disruption due to covet. And they covered prior to the fact what purpose a lady from New Hanover represent about Liraz. A question for representative friendly, please. Wasn't friendly German. You sure heels represented friendly. Um, I'm reading that This, uh, mentions tuition and fees isn't limited to tuition and fees or how are we treating room and board and those types of things? This bill is limited just to tuition and fees. The room and board matters have mostly already been dealt with by each of the individual institutions. For what purpose? Gem from for size represent Montgomery rise, X bill sponsored question friendly Germany. Oh, sure, Heels. President Fraley, Uh, in Billy may be the first appropriation we did for cares at resource is that we not appropriate to the UNC system funds to help offset costs for any loss in room aboard a tuition. No, we did not. There was a request for that. But the regulations on the care Zach funds did not allow for that to be done. The cost to the U. N. C system, I believe, was $120 million for room and board. But it didn't qualify. Follow up Germany of the actual tradition question heels. And but they were there. Some institutions that receive direct resource is from the cares at, um for that purpose, then no, even the money that was received. I'm not sure about that. There was a split on the money that university received. Half of it had to be used for students support and half of it for institutional support. And I'll get you an answer. But I just I don't clearly remember whether the part for the students could be used on the room and board Further discussion.
