California hospitals overwhelmingly oppose AB 3087
State of Reform

The California Hospital Association is opposed to Assembly Bill 3087 (Kalra, D-San Jose), a poorly constructed measure that would take billions of dollars out of the state’s health care system, while doing nothing to improve the quality of patient care in California. The bill would cripple patient access to care through a government-run price setting scheme.

This bill is a recipe for disaster. Based on an initial review of AB 3087, CHA estimates that the state’s hospitals may lose at least $18 billion annually in revenues.
