SUPPORT AB 1488: CALIFORNIA SICKLE CELL TREATMENT ACT
AB1488 provides funding for the rational care for persons who have sickle cell disease. This underserved group has little access to primary care physicians for their care and as a result they are forced to use emergency rooms and hospitalization as sources of primary care.
This bill proposes to create three primary sickle cell treatment centers in the state of California that will provide the state with Best Practice Guidelines for all health care providers. These centers will become resource centers to provide expertise and training for health care providers within the state.
