Gov. Newsom’s Proposed Office of Health Care Affordability Offers Framework to Tackle Cost Challenges​

“Governor Newsom’s proposal to create the state’s Office of Health Care Affordability advances an important opportunity to make health care more affordable so we can continue caring for every Californian every day,” said Carmela Coyle, President & CEO of the California Hospital Association. 

“This work is complex and demands equal responsibility and engagement from all segments of the health care field including providers, insurers, suppliers, and others. While more detail is needed to fully understand the mechanics of this proposal, the goals of greater access and affordability should be priorities for everyone who cares for Californians.”
