VICA Health Committe Helps Legislative Advocacy


The Valley Industry & Commerce Association (VICA) health committee chaired is by Jim Garrison, President of Pacific Federal Insurance Corporation (PFIC.

The VICA Healthcare Committee is one of nine VICA policy committees that help the organization determine its legislative agenda. The Healthcare Committee reviews, discusses and makes recommendations regarding policy related to healthcare and insurance. In 2010, the committee was active in developing principles for the national healthcare reform conversation, and traveled to Sacramento to discuss bills related to the implementation of the federal healthcare reform law at the state level and other state issues dealing with health insurance. Federal healthcare reform has dramatically changed the landscape of the healthcare system and creates new implementation challenges. During the upcoming year, the committee will continue to follow and tackle healthcare policy that impacts businesses, nonprofits and the community as a whole. For additional information visit www.
