CHBRP generally analyzes bills prior to their first Senate or Assembly Health Committee hearing. As bills move through the Legislature, bills may be significantly amended, which may alter CHBRP’s projected impacts. In many cases, part or all of CHBRP's analyses remain relevant. CHBRP’s analyses may also be of use after the legislative cycle concludes in order to inform future legislation, the implementation of analyzed legislation that is signed into law or included in California’s budget, and the ongoing evaluation of relevant health insurance benefit-related legislation.

CHBRP maintains tables for each legislative cycle indicating the most recent version of each analyzed bill and the extent to which CHBRP’s analyses remain relevant.
