New MHA Resource Outlines Changing Public Health Emergency Flexibilities

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services COVID-19 public health emergency (PHE) will expire May 11, 2023. The end of the PHE will eliminate several pandemic flexibilities, while others have been extended by Congress.

To help members understand the steps they should take to prepare for the end of the PHE, the MHA recently developed an End of the Public Health Emergency Resource Document. This resource outlines key changes once the PHE ends and the flexibilities extended past the expiration of the PHE. These changes and flexibilities relate to Medicaid Redetermination, telemedicine, COVID-19 vaccines, testing and treatments, and other COVID-19 waivers.

For additional resources and information related to the end of the PHE, please visit the MHA COVID-19 Public Health Emergency webpage.

Members with questions should contact Kelsey Ostergren at the MHA.
