  • a mandate for all California residents to purchase health insurance, and a mandate for all state employers with 50 or more employees to offer employee health coverage;
  • exploration of an “all-payer” payment system that would set prices for healthcare providers and plans in the state, with the aim of reducing administrative burdens; and
  • development of a California state “Prevention and Wellness Trust Fund” to support community disease prevention and wellness efforts that address the root causes of preventable conditions.
