Watching where the premium dollar goes…

Health Access was pleased to be part of a press conference this morning, where CALPIRG Education Fund released a new report looking at how much money insurers in California and nationwide spend on actual health care, rather than administrative overhead, marketing, and profits. The report found that requiring insurers to spend 85 cents of every premium dollar on patient care is a strong, achievable standard that will protect consumers.

The press conference was with Senator Elaine Alquist, chair of the Senate Health Committee, who is the author of SB316, which would set such a standard. We’ll keep reporting about this important bill as it moves through the Senate in the next month.

Health Access California promotes quality, affordable health care for all Californians.
