HEALTH CAR FOR ALL – CALIFORNIA
(SB840 – Senator Sheila Kuehl’s Proposed Bill)
SB840: The California Health Insurance Reliability Act (CHIRA). Establishes the California Health Insurance System, administered by an elected commissioner, to provide comprehensive health care coverage to all California residents through a “single payer” system. Persons would choose their health care providers, who would be reimbursed for their services through a consolidated claims, financing, and administrative system. Requires the commissioner to seek waivers, agreements, etc., to merge various federal, state, and local health care funds into the system.
Speaker: Howard Mitchell, M.D.
Dr. Mitchell is the husband of Marie Mitchell, a member of LWVWCCC. He is a physician with many years of experience in the Health Service and has studied the idea of a single payer health plan since it’s inception. He also spoke to our League on this subject several years ago and will bring us up to date. Don’t miss this important meeting.
