Insurers have limited access to #biomarker testing for thousands of Californians living with #cancer. We urge @GavinNewsom to sign #SB912, which would broaden coverage of comprehensive biomarker testing. @tam_tweets @JimDeBoo

Lower-income and vulnerable CA communities have less access to #biomarker testing. @GovernorNewsom, signing #SB912 is a matter of health equity. @tam_tweets @JimDeBoo

Greater transparency in the #340B Drug Pricing Program can help ensure it benefits California's uninsured and underinsured patients most, rather than out of state contract pharmacies.

When programs like the #340B drug discount program do not function as intended or are abused, CA’s underserved and vulnerable patient communities can bear a disproportionate burden.

A quick cameo as the California delegation discusses #telehealth expansion before their #AUASummit22 congressional meetings. @auawest @Calurology

The #340B drug program is now the country's second largest federal prescription drug program, behind only #Medicare Part D. Despite the size of the program, there is little transparency to ensure that the CA patients who need it are benefiting.

With overwhelming, bipartisan support #AB347 passed the California Legislature and now @CAGovernor has signed #steptherapyreform into #CA law!

Great news for patients in #CA as #AB347 to reform #steptherapy insurance protocols is now law! TY @DrArambulaAD31 for your leadership and @CAGovernor for your signature!
