Health Insurance and the Uninsured
The Senate is considering AB 2 by Assembly member Mervyn Dymally (D-Compton) (Bill status, 8/18). The measure was amended to allow the state to collect $1 per member per month from health plans to help support the Major Risk Medical Insurance Program. Health plans that offer coverage to people eligible for the program would be exempt from the fee (Bill text, 8/14).This is part of the California Healthline Daily Edition, a summary of health policy coverage from major news organizations.
