The COVID-19 Public Health Emergency (PHE) status as stated under Section 319 of the Public Health Service Act is expired at midnight on Thursday, May 11th. Make sure your office/organization is prepared by joining us for the most recent updates on post-PHE Medicare changes.

COVID-19 PHE relief waivers, policies and protocols provided much-needed flexibility during the pandemic to offer expanded access to medical care and support during a period of increased demand.

Some of the changes implemented during the pandemic will be transitioned to permanent status or will be granted a delayed expiration date that extends beyond the end date of the PHE, while others will be expiring at the end of the PHE.

Throughout the pandemic, information has been ever-changing and distributed at a rapid pace. This webinar will cover a multitude of PHE-related topics to include, but not limited to:

  • COVID-19 testing and vaccine administration.
  • COVID-19 treatments and coverage
  • COVID-19-related 20% add-on DRG payments.
  • Telehealth Services
  • Hospital at Home
  • Disaster Response Waivers
