Kalra Measure to Prevent Skyrocketing Health Care Prices
(Sacramento) - A coalition of workers’ unions and health care advocates joined Assemblymember Ash Kalra (D-San Jose) to unveil legislation that delivers health care price relief for Californians. Assembly Bill 3087 is in response to new reports that show more than 40 percent of Americans skipped a doctor visit when they were sick or injured in the last year because of the high cost of health care. “AB 3087, the Health Care Price Relief Act, is a breakthrough for Californians who are suffering from out-of-control health care prices,” said Assemblymember Kalra. “Reining in skyrocketing health care prices is the first step in any serious effort to deliver life-saving care to more Californians, and relieve the pressure that soaring healthcare costs place on working families.” To learn more, watch this Assembly Access video.
