Governor signs continuity-of-care bill
Sacramento Business Journal

Legislation that ensures continuity of care for patients forced to change health insurance plans in the middle of treatment for serious conditions — even if their provider is not in their new health plan’s network — has been signed by Gov. Jerry Brown.

Assembly Bill 369 by Dr. Richard Pan from Sacramento seeks to protect California residents with ongoing health conditions who bought insurance that was cancelled due to stricter rules under federal health reform.
