TickHARRISBURG – The Pennsylvania Lyme Resource Network held a rally at the state Capitol on October 22, 2019 to generate support for HB 629, which mandates health insurer coverage for extended antibiotic treatment of Lyme disease and other tick-borne diseases. In April, the Pennsylvania House passed HB 629 and the bill was referred to the Senate Banking & Insurance Committee on April 22, where it now sits without action. PLNA supports the bill.

Contact your state Senator and urge them to contact Senator Mario Scavello (R – Monroe and Northampton), Chair of the Senate Banking and Insurance Committee. Ask your Senator to urge Senator Scavello to move the bill out of committee to the Senate floor.

The the incidences of tick-borne diseases are exploding. To learn more about this danger to landscape and nursery workers and how you can protect yourself and your workers, see PLNA e-news August 2018.
