The University of California Office of the President invites comments on the draft Presidential Policy on Affiliations with Certain Health Care Organizations, which supports the implementation of Regents Policy 4405. The policy makes revisions to the existing interim Presidential Policy, which was first circulated for systemwide review in March 2022. The policy has been revised to:
- Focus on UC values by enhancing the policy summary statement and addressing the importance of affiliations with government agencies;
- Clarify expectations of UC providers and define “emergency services” and “emergency medical conditions” under the Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act (EMTALA) and the California Department of Managed Health Care;
- Specify implementation of the voluntary requirement for UC health trainees to support continuity of University training programs; and
- Reduce administrative burden for “limited affiliations,” while maintaining consistency with Regents Policy 4405.
The proposed revisions to the policy may be viewed at https://ucanr.edu/sites/PCPA/Revisions/.
