About Rehabilitation

On January 29, 2020, Senior Health Insurance Company of Pennsylvania ("SHIP") was placed in rehabilitation by the Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania (the "Court") with the consent of SHIP’s board of directors and of the trustees of the Senior Health Care Oversight Trust, which owns SHIP.  The Court appointed Pennsylvania Insurance Commissioner Jessica K. Altman (the "Commissioner") as Rehabilitator, and she has appointed Patrick H. Cantilo as Special Deputy Rehabilitator ("SDR").

Rehabilitation is a court supervised process intended to remedy the company’s financial deterioration for the benefit of policyholders and creditors.

On April 22, 2020, the Commissioner, as statutory Rehabilitator of SHIP, filed a proposed Plan of Rehabilitation ("Plan"), along with an application seeking Approval of the Plan and an application for the Approval of Form and Distribution of Notice. On June 12, 2020, the Court issued a Case Management Order establishing deadlines and procedures for Comments and a Hearing on the Proposed Plan of Rehabilitation and approved a form of notice of the filing of the application seeking Approval of the Plan.
