STATE HEALTH CARE PLAN. INITIATIVE STATUTE. Directs, without requiring, that Legislature, Governor establish health care plan ensuring coverage for all employees, by or through their employers, and for every other resident of the state. Authorizes Legislature to require recipients to pay portion of plan cost. With stated exceptions, plan shall be financed in total by existing health care expenditures. Mandates overall medical care cost reduction of at least 5 percent below 1992-93 fiscal year level through specified reductions. Authorizes cost-controls to maintain medical care cost inflation at or below Consumer Price Index. Implementation to commence in 1994; completion by 1997. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local governments: No direct fiscal effect because there is no specific requirement that the program be implemented. If health insurance program enacted, program would have unknown net fiscal impact on the state and local governments, with potential increased costs to the state and savings to the counties.
