The U.S. House of Representatives voted to assign $96 billion to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS), with provisions that could offer support to hospice and home care providers as well as patients and family caregivers. The bill will need to be approved by the White House.
“This spending bill determines the critical federal investments in health, labor, human services, and education, and builds on this subcommittee’s efforts at the center of the health and economic crises, both of which have exposed serious disparities,” said House Appropriations Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies Chairwoman Rosa DeLauro (D-Conn.). “This legislation builds upon our previous emergency and supplemental response packages and represents our critical work to defeat the coronavirus, not surrender to it. From Early Head Start to Social Security, these programs touch individuals and families throughout their lifespan. With this bill, we help our constituents access new cures, new treatments, new research, and new protections to help them and their families live healthier lives.”
