Medical Certificates

Rachel Blake wrote an article in Shelterforce magazine (spring/summer 2018), which followed up on comments she wrote for a coalition of partners that bridged the health and housing sectors. The goal of the article was to continue to raise awareness about the existence of medical certificates (they help people who are seriously ill avoid utility termination) and to highlight some ways that process for issuing medical certificates can be improved. This work took place in consultation with PULP. This work is ongoing. The Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission was expected to issue updated regulations concerning medical certificates in Spring 2019.
