The Letter

Subject: Include Medicare Crisis Program, COVID Emergency Manufacturing Act, & Community Health Center Funding in the Next Federal Package

Dear Representative/Senator:

As you work on CARES 2, the next package for COVID-19 relief and recovery, I urge you to include three things that will SAVE LIVES and help us reopen our economy:

  1. The Medicare Crisis Program (HR 6674) to enroll in Medicare those who become eligible for unemployment insurance during the pandemic, and their households, to insure more people in Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Plan (CHIP), and to ensure no COVID-19 related cost-sharing in any public or private health plan. 
  2. The COVID-19 Emergency Manufacturing Act so frontline workers will have the personal protective equipment they need to stay healthy and all states will have the testing supplies they need to help contain the spread of COVID and reopen the economy.
  3. $7.6 billion in emergency funding for the nation’s community health centers so they can stay open and take care of our most underserved communities, regardless of immigration status, including over 1.2 million people in WA State.

Without this emergency funding, many of these health centers across Washington state will be forced to close, including 167 of their clinic sites.

We were honored with a personal greeting from Representative Pramila Jayapal, WA Congressional District 7, who outlined a plan of action to make affordable health care available to everyone during the pandemic. In case you missed it, you can watch her presentation here.  

Thanks to all who attended our first Zoom-only general meeting on April 20 – our largest General Meeting turnout ever. Thank you to the presenters on the health care frontlines, on the racial disparities highlighted and exacerbated by the pandemic, on WA State’s legislative session, budget, and ongoing work on health care coverage and affordability. Thanks to those who presented the calls to action which we have gathered for you here.
