Broad Coalition Of Health Leaders Releases Report Recommending New California Entity To Address Health Care Costs And Affordability

SACRAMENTO, CA – A diverse coalition of senior health policy leaders today released a report recommending a new California government entity to improve health care affordability, including by setting cost targets for health plans and providers.

California Health Reform Initiative (CHRI) stakeholders, including some who often find themselves on opposite sides, met together in a year-long process to develop this recommendation. The group analyzed health care affordability in California and efforts by other states to address skyrocketing health care costs. The report comes as a growing chorus of health care industry and consumer groups have voiced support for Governor Gavin Newsom’s proposal to create a new state Office of Health Care Affordability.
