OCDEL Survey Regarding Insurance Deadline Extended

OCDEL Insurance Survey -- Deadline Extended

Spanish Option Now Available
Deadline to provide feedback extended to August 4, 2023

The Pennsylvania Insurance Department (PID) and the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services (DHS) have put this survey together to gain an understanding of the insurance market for both foster care and childcare providers. Both Departments have heard about difficulties experienced by providers in finding insurance coverage coupled with the rising cost of insurance for foster care and childcare. PID previously sent out a similar survey, but due to limited response the Department was unable to capture as much information as needed to fully understand the scope of the insurance market. Even if you responded previously, please complete this survey so that both DHS and PID have updated answers.

Your input and the responses from this survey are appreciated and will help both PID and DHS understand availability and affordability within the insurance market and assist in determining what next steps to take. Please note that individual responses will be confidential, and that only deidentified/aggregated data would be shared. Please  complete the Survey Monkey questionnaire in English (https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/7QKL677) or in Spanish (https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/SXM97BG) on or before August 4, 2023.

If you have any questions about this survey, please contact PID: Caolinn Martin (caolmartin@pa.gov) or DHS: Jameekia Barnett (jamebarnet@pa.gov).
