Church Alliance Urges Congress to Protect Employee Health Coverage

Topic: 
Health Care

On April 23, 2020, the Church Alliance wrote to House and Senate leadership urging that Congress take immediate measures to ensure that employees of faith communities, and all employees, are able to retain their employer-provided health coverage during the pandemic.  The Church Alliance joined with the Alliance to Fight for Health Care by supporting its recent letter to Congress seeking legislation to mitigate disruption in health coverage for employees. Specifically, we asked for subsidized health insurance continuation for the unemployed in both ERISA and non-ERISA plans, funding for health plans facing significant claims, and policies that promote health coverage for all individuals facing job and economic loss.
