Great first step. Me question is about enforcement which is important for this issue. How would the contents of this Bill be enforced? And how would you combat ‘green-washing’ on the part of these corporations? Thank you.

We need to pass the expanded and improved Medicare for All, and a similar single-payer program in California would be a great first step.
Mary Jo Poole

Will you be looking at the costs of duplication of services, e.g., items like yearly "open enrollment" plans that emerge from the increasing privatization of healthcare?

why are the billing $ numbers always so crazy larger than what is then paid and accepted as financial coverage? so bizarre to see billing is $800 and insurance paid $175. etc. and patient pays $15. so unrealistic and off-putting

Last year, Kaiser Health Foundation tried to do a comparative study of the costs of particular procedures. The reporters said they were completely flummoxed by the mased but cohesive responses they got back on the components of the procedures. They gave up trying to analyze the mess. What will OHCA do to force hospitals to report accurately and in an untangled manner?
