COVID-19 Public Health Emergency Extended 90 Days

COVID-19 Public Health Emergency Extended 90 Days

Medicare Medicaid Private Duty

As a result of the continued consequences of the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) extended the Public Health Emergency (PHE) an additional 90 days, effective October 13, 2022. The PHE was first declared in January 2020 and has been renewed every 90 days since.

The declaration helped get treatments and vaccines approved at breakneck speed and enabled the administration to ensure Americans did not have to pay for them. The extension also ensures that policies like expanded Medicaid benefits, telehealth coverage, and extra payments to hospitals and doctors will continue.
