Coverage for Stress Disorders

March 16, 2015

Rep. Joe Verrengia favored expanding coverage to more workers, but he advocated for an incremental approach.

“Quite frankly, if I had my druthers, I probably would like to see it expanded even more, but, having said that, the political reality of this issue is it has been around for so many years, post-traumatic stress, and I think for this bill to see the light of day, or having any chance of seeing the light of day, I think it is important that we just initially narrow the scope of those who we want covered, and, then if we are successful in overcoming that hurdle, then maybe down the road we can keep adding on key personnel.” he said.
