Patients undergoing chemotherapy would pay less for pill-based treatments under legislation sent to the governor Wednesday over the objections of some health plans and insurers.

The state Assembly passed AB1000 on 51-12 vote.

It would prohibit health plans and insurance policies from charging more for covering oral chemotherapy than for the intravenous treatment.
