CAHP Statement: Health Plans Statement on SB 17 (Hernandez)

State Senator Ed Hernandez (D-West Covina) was joined by consumer advocates, labor representatives and other California leaders today as he introduced SB 17, which will bring much-needed transparency to prescription drug pricing. The introduction of SB 17 marks the third time in three years that California legislators have pushed to shine a light on how the pharmaceutical industry prices its products.

CAHP Statement: Response to State Budget Proposal

In his proposed budget for the 2017-18 fiscal year, Governor Brown proposes elimination of the pilot project known as the Coordinated Care Initiative (CCI), which coordinates a range of health care, home and community supports through managed care plans in seven counties. However, some components of the CCI are extended, including coordinated care through Cal MediConnect, integrating long-term services and supports into managed care, as well as mandatory enrollment of dual eligibles.
