Bill Amended to Prohibit In-Office Self Referral


Yesterday SB 1215 by Senator Ed Hernandez (D), chair of the Senate Health Committee, was amended  to remove the in-office exception for anatomic pathology, advanced imaging, radiation oncology and physical therapy from the California self referral law. He has included this with a package of bills that would address cost containment in health care delivery.


Since the original provisions of SB 1215 have been removed it will now return to the Senate Rules Committee for committee assignment. It will likely be referred to the Senate Business and Professions Committee and heard later in April. We will be in touch with you with more details and actions you can take to help secure passage of the bill.
