Issues and Our Positions:

  • AB 2887 – Support: This bill would require schools have an emergency response plan to respond to incidents involving an individual experiencing sudden cardiac arrest or similar life-threatening emergency. The plan would include CPR training and AED placement base on nationally recognized guidelines. The bill is being sponsored by the American Heart Association.
  • SB 1008 – Support: This bill would require health plans to cover treatment for obesity, including coverage for bariatric surgery and at least one FDA-approved anti-obesity medication.
  • SB 1120 – Support: Requires health plans to have a physician supervise the use of artificial intelligence decision making tools for prior authorization requests.
  • AB 3097 – Oppose: Would establish a new category of professional entitled “Radiologist Assistant”. A radiologist technologist could register with the Medical Board after meeting certain requirements to be a “radiologist assistant”. A radiologist assistant would only be allowed to be supervised by a radiologist and not any other physician specialty. This bill would prohibit cardiologists from supervising radiologist assistants that work in the cath/EP lab or in cardiac imaging.
