A bipartisan bill championed by the state’s attorney general and passed Thursday by the General Assembly will give consumers more clarity on their medical bills and on hospitals’ debt-collection efforts.

The House voted by a 103-10 margin to send House Bill 834 to Gov. Pat McCrory. The Senate voted 49-0 Wednesday. If signed by McCrory, elements of the bill would go into effect over the course of the next 12 months.
