SB 70 – California

Status: In Process
Year Introduced: 2023
Link: https://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/billTextClient.xhtml?bill_id=202320240SB70

The bill would prohibit a health care service plan contract from requiring additional cost sharing not already imposed for a drug that was previously approved for coverage. Because a willful violation of these provisions by a health care service plan would be a crime, the bill would impose a state-mandated local program. The bill would also prohibit a disability insurer that covers prescription drug benefits from limiting or declining coverage for a drug or dose of a drug as prescribed if specified criteria are met.
