We are waiting on federal guidance before we can begin this program and need to get our systems updated. Claims filed now cannot be paid, and you will have to file again. We will update this site and notify news outlets when we are ready to accept claims. Please rest assured that we will backdate and back pay claims as appropriate based on the law and guidance.
