SB 65: California Health Benefit Exchange: Financial Assistance (2019 - 2020)
Would require the California Health Benefit Exchange, notwithstanding the provision establishing the California Health Trust Fund and only to the extent that the Legislature appropriates funding for these purposes, to administer financial assistance to help low-income and middle-income Californians access affordable healthcare coverage by requiring the Exchange to implement specified maximum premium contributions and to reduce copays and deductibles for individuals who meet specified income requirements. The bill would also require the Exchange to administer financial assistance in a manner that maximizes federally funded subsidies.
