In 2013, State Representative Jeffrey Sanchez, Co-Chair of the Joint Committee on Public Health, reintroduced H.D. 2686, An Act Preventing Unnecessary Medical Debt. Chairman Sanchez's bill, which he authored with input from a task force organized by HLA, would facilitate hospital patients' participation in financial assistance programs, reduce gaps in insurance enrollment for low-income consumers and prevent certain unfair medical debt collection tactics. Come hear Chairman Sanchez's Research Analyst, Torey McNamara, and Attorney Selig discuss the proposed legislation and its prospects in the new legislative session.
