HHS Intends to Extend Public Health Emergency

Jul 1, 2020, 10:55 AM by Grace Whittington

The United States Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) spokesman Michael Caputo indicated on Monday, June 29 that HHS intends to extend the COVID-19 public health emergency that is set to expire 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.

AAPM&R continues to monitor this and will update you as we learn more.
