Coronavirus Stimulus Bills Leave Health Insurers Wanting

Congress has now passed three separate bills to address the ever-worsening COVID-19 crisis in the U.S., spending trillions of dollars to lessen the economic impact and support the country’s overtaxed health care system. But for the most part, this legislation has not included measures requested by the health insurance industry aimed at boosting coverage affordability and access.

COVID-19, the disease caused by the new coronavirus that has swept the world, has claimed more than 4,000 lives in the U.S. and caused officials to shut down large portions of the economy as they try to slow the infection rate.
