Center for Business Advocacy

December 6, 2019
The Health Care Council welcomed Assemblymember Miguel Santiago at the last meeting of the year. At the meeting, the Assemblymember discussed the evolving health care legislative priorities in the state legislature. He predicts that there will be ongoing conversations on issues such as rate-setting, Medi-Cal reimbursements and surprise medical billing. Additionally, the Assemblymember spoke on the nexus of mental health and homelessness as it relates to the current homelessness crisis in the region. The meeting also heard a presentation on repealing the Health Insurance Tax currently in Congress, which would affect small businesses. The body voted to support the appeal if there was no objection from the Chamber's Small Business Council, President & CEO and Board Chair. Lastly, there was a brief discussion on the 2020 Health Care Policy Council Guiding Principles and the upcoming ACCESS Washington, D.C. advocacy trip next year. SEE THE PHOTOS.
