Some current bills affecting nursing in California
Our Legislature is currently considering various bills that would affect nursing practice and healthcare in California. Here are a few you should know about.
Despite the recent prominence of telehealth, current federal and state law still limits Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement for telehealth services, and the temporary waivers enacted during the pandemic won’t last forever.
Introduced by Assemblymembers Cecelia Aguiar-Curry (D-4) and Robert Rivas (D-30), A.B.32 would revise state law to ensure that California’s Medicaid program, Medi-Cal, will continue to cover telehealth services outside of a declared state of emergency.
