Michael J. Daponde will present on April 5, 2019 (10-11am PST) at the Annual Meeting and Spring Seminar hosted by the California Society for Healthcare Attorneys (“CSHA”) in La Jolla.  This year’s three-day seminar will focus on, and provide, an in-depth overview of changes to California health law.  CLE credit is offered.

Mr. Daponde will discuss Governor Newsom’s proposals to lower health care costs and increase access, including moving to universal or single-payer health care, consolidating the state’s prescription drug purchases into a state-run program, expanding Medi-Cal to undocumented immigrants, instituting an individual mandate/penalty, and appointing a California Surgeon General and a mental health “czar.”  Mr. Daponde will also discuss the legislature’s response to these proposals, as well as California’s response to federal actions.
