Join Californians Allied for Patient Protection to preserve MICRA

The Association of California Healthcare Districts is a member of Californians Allied for Patient Protection (CAPP), the coalition created to protect access to health care and patient safety through California’s Medical Injury Compensation Reform Act (MICRA).  ACHD encourages your Healthcare District, as well as every other District in California, to join the CAPP coalition at no cost.

You will be in good company.  In addition to more than 30 healthcare districts that are already CAPP supporters, the coalition also includes: hospitals, physicians, nurses, dentists, community clinics, local governments, professional liability carriers and other healthcare providers.

ACHD joined CAPP because it understands that MICRA must be preserved as a critical component of California’s healthcare infrastructure.  It was enacted by overwhelming bipartisan support in response to a crisis of runaway liability costs.  For over 30 years, MICRA has been the national model to ensure that injured patients receive fair compensation, while keeping doctors and other healthcare providers in practice and helping clinics and hospitals remain open.

Below is a list of CAPP’s individual ACHD supporters.  A complete coalition list and additional information about CAPP and MICRA can be found at www.micra.org.

Antelope Valley Health Care District, City of Alameda Health Care District, Coalinga Hospital District, Eastern Plumas Health Care District, Eden Township Health Care District, El Camino Hospital District, Hi-Desert Memorial Health Care District, John C.
