Just a quick update: Senate Appropriations met on Monday. They heard and considered some key health bills, which then were placed on suspense.
The bill including AB786(Jones), to limit out-of-pocket costs and better label products in the individual insurance market; AB1521(Jones) to limit unfair reimbursement practices for brokers; and SB1142(Price), which prevent Medi-Cal patients from getting unfair bills.
The committee will decide soon whether they are held for the year, or they proceed to the Senate floor.
Other bills of interest to health advocates are on our website, and in a bill list/fact sheet format as well.
