LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 2315, Monning. Governor’s appointments: Senate confirmation.
Existing law creates the Office of Patient Advocate to provide assistance to, and advocate on behalf of, individuals served by health care service plans regulated by the Department of Managed Health Care, insureds covered by health insurers regulated by the Department of Insurance, and individuals who receive or are eligible for other health care coverage in California, including coverage available through the Medi-Cal program, the California Health Benefit Exchange, the Healthy Families Program, or any other county or state health care program.
Existing law provides that the head of the Office of Patient Advocate is appointed by the Governor subject to confirmation by the Senate.
Existing law transferred the Office of Patient Advocate from the Department of Managed Health Care to the California Health and Human Services Agency.
This bill would correct the reference to the Office of Patient Advocate in the provision regarding appointments by the Governor that are subject to Senate confirmation to reflect its placement in the California Health and Human Services Agency.
