Policy and Politics
The California Assembly’s Health Committee voted March 19 to advance A.B. 290, a measure that would limit dialysis provider profits when insurance premiums are covered by third-party payers.
In a statement about the vote, American Kidney Fund president and CEO LaVarne A. Burton said, “This bill puts vulnerable patients in the middle of a longstanding financial feud between insurers, unions and providers. We hope California legislators understand the devastating consequences this legislation will have on thousands of low-income, predominantly minority Californians and reject the measure as it moves through the legislature.”
