In a memorandum signed by Thomas Schramm, chairman of the American directors association, and Russell Holland, executive director, the association is in talks with other employers and is also seeking relief. For those who work in the news industry, were pushing networks and local TV stations to provide them with a safe place to work.
The ADA board also approved temporary changes to coverage during the outbreak. This includes the novel coronavirus pneumonia test for all patients. The memorandum also states that the current insurance coverage will expire on March 31, but members who have reached the minimum threshold of $35000 disposable income from full year 2019 will be covered by March 31, 2021. Again, even if you dont have income in the first quarter of 2020, you will still be covered next year.
