California hospital price control measure proposed

A proposed California ballot measure would limit hospital charges to 125 percent of total patient care expenses beginning August 1, 2014.  The measure, the Fair Healthcare Pricing Act of 2012, has been submitted to the state Attorney General for a title and summary, the first step before proponents can begin gathering voter signatures to place it on the ballot.

Here’s a fact sheet from the measure’s proponents, the Service Employees International Union/United Healthcare Workers West.
