Dr. Paul Song, noted oncologist and healthcare activist, will join SOSN via ZOOM at 7PM on November 17 to share his thoughts about what the upcoming CA healthcare reform bill AB 1400 will mean for Asian/Pacific Islander communities and other communities contending with inequality in healthcare. AB 1400 addresses the issue, so it is directly relevant to the efforts that Save Our Seniors Network has been engaged in and it represents a path forward to address the loss of the Keiro Nursing and Retirement Homes to Pacifica Companies.

Dr. Paul Song

AB 1400 will be heard in the Assembly in January, 2022. Now is the time to learn about this important legislation, so get ready for an informative conversation on November 17. Have your questions ready!

Adoption of Cal-Care AB 1400 will be a life-changing bill which would have the most impact on peoples’ lives since the establishment of social security and medicare. AB 1400 will:

• Legally require Pacifica Companies and all nursing homes to provide the proper bilingual/bi-cultural care for all residents and patients.

• Legally restrict “margins of profit” by Pacifica, and all nursing homes, by cutting back or decreasing the quality of care, prioritizing patient-centered care over profit as law.

• A “special projects” budget will be available for the construction  or renovation of healthcare facilities in order to address health disparities in medically under-served communities, such as the lack of any nursing homes which provide Japanese language, food and other cultural needs.

• Provide free quality healthcare from cradle to grave and from head to toe for every Californian, regardless of citizenship, immigration status, gender, sexual orientation, race, religion.

• Portable, free healthcare for all means businesses and non-profits will be relieved of the obligation to provide healthcare.

• No more co-pays, premiums or deductibles.

• Includes medical, dental, hearing vision, mental health, prescription drugs,long-term care and more. Decisions about care would be made between the patient and their attending medical professionals not private insurance companies.
