COVID-19 Public Health Emergency Likely to Extend Past January 2023

November 29, 2022

Will the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) extend the COVID-19 public health emergency (PHE) past the current end date of Jan. 11, 2023?
Speculation is high that another PHE extension is very likely. HHS has not yet announced a termination date and had promised to provide a 60-day advance notice. That notification should have been delivered on Nov. 11, 2022 – a date that has come and gone.
The ending of the PHE will trigger many changes as the United States has been operating under “pandemic-era policies,” including those related to telehealth, the fast-tracking of approvals for COVID-19 vaccines and treatments, and healthcare coverage for Medicaid beneficiaries.
The COVID-19 PHE first took effect in January 2020 and HHS has renewed the declaration every 90 days since then.
