SB 1704 Implementation Report (2009)

The California Health Benefits Review Program (CHBRP) was originally established in response to Assembly Bill (AB) 1996 (Thomson, 2002), which "requested the University of California to assess legislation proposing mandated health care benefits to be provided by health care service plans and health insurers." The provisions of AB 1996, originally set to sunset on January 1, 2007, were extended by Senate Bill (SB) 1704 (Kuehl, 2006) and further extended by AB 1540 (Assembly Health Committee, 2009). Current statute would extend CHBRP until June 30, 2015. SB 1704 added the provision that requested the University of California, through CHBRP, analyze legislation that would repeal existing benefit mandates and current statute extends those provisions. SB 1704 had also requested the University of California (UC) to submit a report to the Governor and the Legislature by January 1, 2010, describing the implementation of SB 1704 as enacted (Statutes of 2006: Chapter 684). This report is submitted in compliance with that request.
