patients protected with final legislative actions

California's legislature took action to protect patients during the final hours of its legislative session on Wednesday, August 31. The legislature defeated bills that would have allowed Naturopathic Doctors to independently prescribe Schedule V medications and would have given Certified Nurse Midwives authority to manage a full range of gynecological and obstetric services without supervision. These bills were defeated thanks to the advocacy efforts of physician organizations, including OPSC. The legislature approved bills that - if signed by Governor Brown - will limit "surprise billing" and authorize specified hospitals to hire physicians.

 

Key Bills:

  • "Surprise Billing" AB 72 (Bonta)
  • Physician Employment AB 2024 (Wood)
  • Naturopathic Doctors SB 538 (Hueso)
  • Certified Nurse Midwives AB 1306 (Burke)
