Dr. Scheffler Featured on KCRW Discussing Pros and Cons of AB 3087

Petris Center Director Dr. Scheffler recently joined Dr. Mazer from the California Medical Association to discuss AB 3087 on KCRW radio. The station describes that the new California bill would “allow the state to set prices for healthcare, including doctor’s appointments, surgery and hospital stays.” Prices would be based off Medicare rates and then be determined by this new independent commission. Democratic Assemblyman Ash Kalra (San Jose) introduced the bill on April 9th.

The pros and cons are discussed fully here.
