HHS to Extend COVID-19 Public Health Emergency

From Modern Healthcare:

“HHS spokesperson Michael Caputo on Monday tweeted that HHS intends to extend the COVID-19 public health emergency that is set to expire on July 25.”

“The extension would prolong the emergency designation by 90 days. Several payment policies and regulatory adjustments are attached to the public health emergency, so the extension is welcome news for healthcare providers.”

“”[HHS] expects to renew the Public Health Emergency due to COVID-19 before it expires. We have already renewed this PHE once,” Caputo said.”
