Senate Bill 199

Senate Bill 199 provides that a person without a license who performs health care procedures or surgical procedures is guilty of a felony. If a procedure results in death, the crime is a category B felony, with no probation allowed, unless a greater penalty is provided by law. The measure also amends provisions of existing law imposing penalties for the practice of various medical professions without a license, to specify that the greater penalties provided in S.B. 199 must apply when appropriate. This bill is effective on October 1, 2013.
