CHA Issues Alert Ahead of OHCA Hearing

Earlier this week, the California Hospital Association (CHA) issued an alert urging members to testify at the Office of Health Care Affordability (OHCA) board meeting on April 24. With the board’s final decision on a spending target expected at either the April 24 or May 22 board meeting, it is crucial that hospital voices continue to be heard. The board is currently considering two CHA-supported revisions to the proposed 3%, five-year spending growth target: an adjustment to account for population aging and a glide path to phase the target down over time. Members are encouraged to join the meeting in person or virtually.
