Big Day in Senate Health on Insurer Oversight
California Progress Report

Wednesday was a big day in Senate Health Committee, chaired by Senator Elaine Alquist, as legislators considered a number of key bills to provide new patient protections for California consumers, and especially to implement and improve health reform.

Most of the bills were authored by the Assemblymembers, having passed the full Assembly, with the exception of SB 227 (Alquist), the bill about the “high-risk pool” that was reformulated in the context of federal health reform.
