• Here's exactly what the $2 trillion coronavirus stimulus bill means for hospitals, doctors, and health insurers

    4 days ago - By Business Insider

    Congress is coming to the aid of healthcare workers at a time when they're overwhelmed by surging demand and meager medical supplies.
    The Senate passed a $2 trillion stimulus bill late Wednesday night. The package now needs to be voted on by the House.
    More than $100 billion will go toward hospitals, and there are also changes to regulations for over-the-counter drugs and rules about what insurers must cover.
    The House is taking up the stimulus package by voice vote, which would tee it up for President Donald Trump's signature this weekend.
