The Direct Access to Reproductive Health Care Act eliminates referral requirements and other plan restrictions
SACRAMENTO – Assemblywoman Autumn Burke (D-Inglewood), introduced AB 1954 to ease access to reproductive health care for Californians. Under the bill, patients would no longer need a referral to see a reproductive health care provider, and could go out of their provider’s network for care if needed.
“Women in California deserve timely access to quality, affordable, reproductive health care,” said Burke. “AB 1954 opens the door to better care for patients, without unnecessary administrative barriers.”
