Assembly Bill
No. 811

Introduced by Assembly Member Gray

February 20, 2019

An act to amend Section 1201 of the Health and Safety Code, relating to health and care facilities.


AB 811, as introduced, Gray. Clinics.
Existing law regulates the licensing of various entities engaged in delivering healthcare services, including a clinic, defined as an organized outpatient health facility that provides direct medical, surgical, dental, optometric, or podiatric advice, services, or treatment to patients who remain less than 24 hours, and that may also provide diagnostic or therapeutic services to patients in the home as an incident to care provided at the clinic facility. Existing law defines a license for that purpose as a basic permit to operate a clinic.
This bill would make a technical, nonsubstantive change to that provision.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:
