Ending the COVID-19 PHE Resource Update

On February 9, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced the Public Health Emergency (PHE) for COVID-19 will end on May 11, 2023. COVID-19 remains a significant priority for the Biden-Harris Administration and over the next several weeks, CMS and CGS will work to ensure a smooth transition.

During the PHE, CMS used a combination of emergency authority waivers, regulations, enforcement discretion, and sub-regulatory guidance to ensure easier access to care for health care providers and their beneficiaries. Some of the flexibilities created during the pandemic were recently expanded by the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2023. Others, while critical during our initial responses to COVID-19, are no longer needed.

CMS continues to update useful information for providers – specifically around major telehealth and individual waivers – initiated during the PHE.
