CHA Opposes AB 503; Legislation Would Cripple Critical Health Care Services, Conflicts with ACA
PR Newswire

The California Hospital Association (CHA) today announced its opposition to AB 503 (Wieckowski/Bonta). The bill is nearly identical to 2013’s AB 975, which was debated and soundly defeated in the Assembly last year. It is an unreasonable and costly attempt to redefine charity care for all hospitals, and community benefit standards of nonprofit hospitals in California. The bill would negatively impact the implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and would result in cuts to a wide variety of community health care services.
