The pandemic has destabilized the liability insurance market causing policy premiums to spike and renewals to contain COVID-related exclusions. Best practices and policy recommendations from state and federal governing agencies have evolved rapidly, contained conflicting guidance, and left providers without necessary supports. HB1737 contains these necessary protections and was passed by the PA House and Senate. The bill now heads to Governor Wolf's desk. Urge the Governor to allow this bill to become a law - You can use the electronic form to submit an email, call directly at 717-787-2500, or send a letter: Office of the Governor; 508 Main Capitol Building; Harrisburg, PA 17120

COVID-19 has been extremely expensive for long-term care providers. The first round of CARES funding allocated in Act 24 of 2020 offered stop-gap protections to cover a plethora of increased costs. More than $1 billion dollars in federally allocated CARES Act funding remains to be allocated. Urge your member of the general assembly to support $100 million for nursing homes to provide hazard pay to front-line healthcare workers.
