Status of SB858 Relating to Community Health Workers (CHWs) and Testimonies
Aloha KRHCAI Board & Members;
Mahalo for all who provided testimony in support of SB858 Relating to CHWs for your reference. Please note amendments to SB858: deleted certification and reimbursements; supported establishing a Task Force.
Attached is full Health Committee report on Hearing and its referral to Ways and Means (WAM) and Consumer Protection (CPN) committees. Phone: (808)974-4000 x 66090.
1. The next step is contact Sen. Donovan DelaCruz WAM Chair office to request a hearing on SB858. This is where it is critical for as many to call Sen. Dela Cruz office and request a hearing ASAP, so a hearing date/time can be placed on the calendar.
2. Review SB858 with Amendments (SSCR498), then prepare testimony in support of SB858 / SSCR498. I can assist in preparing testimony if anyone would like to submit. Legislative turn around time is 72hrs. when Hearing is posted that we have to submit testimony.
3. If you have never submitted testimony, please note that you must first register at Hawaii State Legislature website.
Please let me know what your thoughts are on SB 858: SSCR498.
