Ask Congress to Address COVID-19 Liability Now

The continued fight against the COVID-19 pandemic threatens our frontline medical professionals and the practices and facilities where they provide patient care with the potential for a flood of unwarranted medical liability lawsuits. These issues arise from circumstances beyond their control, including workforce shortages, inadequate personal protective equipment, and delays in nonessential care resulting from public health guidance and government mandates issued during the pandemic. Congress can and must take action, and HCLA has the resources for you to advocate on behalf of physicians and patients. H.R. 3021, the Coronavirus Provider Protection Act, would grant targeted, limited immunity to pandemic responders on the front lines of the COVID-19 response.
