HHS Extends COVID-19 Public Health Emergency

The US Department of Health and Human Services yesterday announced that it plans to extend the COVID-19 public health emergency, currently set to expire on July 25, by 90 days. This continued designation will extend several policies put in place during the pandemic, including increased Medicare payments for COVID-19 patients, higher federal Medicaid matching rates, and waivers of telehealth restrictions.
