Dr. Gerald Kominski, professor of health policy and management and director of FSPH's UCLA Center for Health Policy Research, was quoted June 7 by Modern Healthcare about the principles driving state-funded universal access to healthcare.
Gerry Kominski, director of the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research, said the California Senate bill lacks details and is more of a statement of principles than a fleshed-out legislative proposal.
"It's an important first step in trying to make universal access a reality," he said. "I believe that healthcare is a right, and we're never to get there if we say it's just too difficult and it costs too much."
