SB 770- Bill to Finance a State-run Healthcare System Advances to Assembly Appropriations Committee
SACRAMENTO, CA – Jun 30th 2023 – The Sacramento Association for Health Underwriters (SAHU) would like to extend its gratitude to all its dedicated members who actively participated in NABIP’s Operation Shout to oppose SB 770, a bill aimed at financing a state-run health care system in California.
Despite the tremendous efforts and numerous communications from CAHIP members, SB 770, which seeks to advance Single Payer Health Care system in California, has successfully passed the Assembly Health Committee and is now progressing to the Assembly Appropriations Committee.
If enacted, legislation would establish a workgroup with the goal of petitioning the federal government to redirect significant funding, potentially amounting to hundreds of billions of dollars, from Medicare and Medi-Cal. The intention behind this redirection would be to support the implementation of a state-run health care system, which has yet to undergo comprehensive testing, including an assessment of its potential costliness.
SAHU kindly urges all its members and non-members to take the time to review the details of SB 770. You can find the fully written Bill here: https://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/home.xhtml
We encourage you to talk to your Assemblymember about the potential implications it may have.
