I Need Legislative Information

Health care in California is highly regulated and legislated. As government and the insurance industry continue their quest to control health care, your clinical autonomy is in great jeopardy. Now more than ever, you need to fight to keep medical decisions in your well-trained hands. Fortunately, you do not have to wage the fight alone.  As a member of the RCMA, you benefit from the legislative efforts of the Riverside County Political Action Committee (RivPac) and the California Political Action Committee (CalPac).
