HCA Insurance Bill Now a 2-House Measure: Act Now in Support! 

TAKE ACTION TODAY

Assembly Insurance Committee Chairman Kevin Cahill has introduced HCA’s home care insurance realignment bill (A.7706), making this legislation a two-house, bipartisan measure, following Senate Insurance Chairman James Seward’s introduction of the bill (S.5076) in late April.

The legislation seeks to provide long-overdue updates to the State Insurance Law dictating coverage for home care services. (More information is on our website here.)

Now that the bill has been introduced in both houses, we need your help to urge both the Senate and Assembly to adopt this critical measure before the end of the legislative session on June 17, just a few weeks away.

HCA already asked you to message your legislators after Senator Seward introduced this important measure. Now, given the bill’s bipartisan two-house support, we need all HCA members to act now, in a big way, to get this legislation passed in both houses.

Today we updated our Legislative Action Center campaign on this bill to reflect the Assembly’s sponsorship. So far, over 130 of you and your colleagues have sent messages to the Senate and Assembly on this measure. We need at least 500 of you to do so now. If you have not yet done so, it is crucial for you to use the Legislative Action Center now to voice your support for S.5076/A.7706.
