    Continuation of Emergency Coverage
    Medicare Part D – Update
    May 11, 2006

    AB 813 Nunez/Perata

    Current state emergency coverage for Medicare Part D failures pursuant to SB 1233 (Perata) will expire on May 16, 2006. Without continuing some state remedy for Medicare Part D problems, some of the most vulnerable persons in the state would be left without prescription drugs when Part D occurred.

    AB 813 (Perata/Nunez) as amended May 9, 2006, appropriates $120 million to continue emergency coverage for prescription drugs through the State’s Medi-Cal program from May 17, 2006 through January 31, 2007 for individuals who have both Medicaid and Medicare coverage (dual eligibles).

    AB 813 has been fast-tracked through the legislature. It was heard in the Senate Health Committee May 10, 2006. On May 11, 2006, the Senate Appropriations Committee passed the bill to the Senate floor where it received the required two-thirds vote to pas the Senate. AB 813 will be heard on the Assembly floor Monday May 15, 2006 where it is expected to pass and then sent to the Governor for signing before expiration of current emergency coverage on May 16, 2006.

    May Day 2006 and the Gulf War 

    Before hitting Wilshire and Western at 4:00 pm, we are sitting in the lounge watching Fox News, which is broadcasting live rallies in Downtown and Santa Ana. That looks pretty hard to match up. Then we think of our plan for today.

    Ever heard CNN’s of live Gulf War broadcasting? Iraqui scud missile headquarters used CNN screens to fine-tune their targets.
