Calif. Senate Advances Bill Expanding Qualifications for Exchange Board Members
On Thursday, the California Senate unanimously passed a bill (SB 972) that would require members of the state's health insurance exchange board to have experience in health product marketing, information technology, information systems management or enrollment assistance. The bill was altered last month to remove a provision that would have added two seats to the board. The measure now heads to the Assembly.
