The Public Health Emergency [PHE] declared by the federal government in response to COVID-19 will end on May 11, 2023. The PHE gave the federal government flexibilities to waive or modify certain requirements in a range of areas, including in the Medicare, Medicaid, and CHIP programs and in private health insurance, as well as to allow for the authorization of medical countermeasures and to provide liability immunity to providers who administer services. Once the PHE is declared over, state Medicaid agencies will begin the process of unwinding the flexibilities that the PHE offered. The Medicaid eligibility for all recipients will be reviewed, likely resulting in the loss of coverage for millions of individuals and families.
This event is for Maryland Philanthropy Network members and invited guests only.
