Area(s) of Interest: California Physician's Legal Handbook
The California Legislature had an interesting year, passing a number of new laws in the midst of a pandemic that affect health care, resulting in considerable operational challenges. While the number of new laws overall is significantly reduced as compared to other years, there was a strong focus on the impacts of COVID-19 pandemic, allied health professionals, mental health, and workforce and labor issues.
The California Medical Association has published a summary of the most significant new health laws of interest to physicians. For more details, see "Significant New California Laws of Interest to Physicians for 2021."
