California Association of Health Plans Opposes Two Tax Bills
California Healthline

The California Association of Health Plans is officially opposing two bills (ABX2-4, ABX2-17) that aim to generate additional funding for Medi-Cal, the state’s Medicaid program, by expanding taxes on some health insurance plans, the Sacramento Bee’s “Capitol Alert” reports.

ABX2-4, by Assembly member Marc Levine (D-San Rafael), would impose a $7.88 monthly flat tax per enrollee on all California managed care plans in an effort to raise nearly $2 billion annually for Medi-Cal, In-Home Supportive Services and other health care programs (Miller, “Capitol Alert,” Sacramento Bee, 9/3).
