Bill Subjects

Clinical Trials.

Abstract

Existing law, the Knox-Keene Health Care Service Plan Act of 1975, provides for the licensure and regulation of health care service plans by the Department of Managed Health Care, and makes a willful violation of the act a crime. Existing law provides for the regulation of health insurers by the Department of Insurance. Existing law requires a health care service plan or health insurer to provide coverage for routine patient care costs related to a clinical trial for cancer, including, among other things, health care services required for the clinically appropriate monitoring of the investigational item or service. Existing law requires the clinical trial to either be exempt from a federal new drug application or be approved by a specified federal agency. This bill would expand required coverage for clinical trials under a plan contract or insurance policy to include a clinical trial relating to the prevention, detection, or treatment of a life-threatening disease or condition, as defined, and include a clinical trial funded by, among others, a qualified nongovernmental research entity. The bill would prohibit a plan contract or insurance policy from, among other things, discriminating against an enrollee or insured for participating in an approved clinical trial. The bill would authorize a plan or insurer to require a qualified enrollee or insured to participate in a clinical trial, as specified, and to restrict coverage to an approved clinical trial in this state, unless the clinical trial is not offered or available through a participating provider in this state. Because a willful violation of the bill's requirements relative to health care service plans would be a crime, the bill would impose a state-mandated local program. The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement. This bill would provide that no reimbursement is required by this act for a specified reason.
