This bill is Supported by CANHR.

This bill responds to a remarkable investigation and series of articles by the Los Angeles Times on audacious, widespread fraud by hospices in Los Angeles County, which has seen explosive growth of for-profit hospices that has given it the highest concentration of hospices in the nation. SB 664 would impose a qualified moratorium on the issuance of new hospice licenses until 365 days after the California State Auditor publishes a report on hospice licensure or when it is repealed on January 1, 2027, whichever is soonest.

Status: Referred to Senate Appropriations Committee
