ACC Advocates to Protect Patient Access to Imaging
The ACC and the ACC California Chapter (CA-ACC) are working with cardiovascular specialist organizations, the California Medical Association and a broad range of stakeholders to defeat California Senate Bill 1215 (S.B 1215), which seeks to remove the in-office ancillary exception for advanced modality imaging and many other services performed outside cardiology. CA-ACC members are meeting personally with lawmakers to educate them on how S.B. 1215 will diminish patient care and a chapter-wide grassroots campaign is underway. In addition, Chapter leaders will speak in Sacramento on April 21 in opposition to the bill. We are carefully monitoring this legislation to ensure such sweeping prohibitions are not copied by other states.
