COVID-19 PUBLIC HEALTH EMERGENCY EXTENDED BY FEDERAL GOVERNMENT

Date: 08/13/21

On July 19, 2021, HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra renewed the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency (PHE). This extends flexibilities and funding tied to the PHE to continue for another 90 days, effective July 20, 2021.

With this renewal the various testing, screening, billing, and telehealth coverages that were implemented in response to the COVID-19 PHE will be extended to our members. This extension will continue until the PHE is either terminated or extended again.

If you have any questions about the extension or the covered benefits impacted by it, please contact Member Services at 1-866-433-6041 (TTY: 711).
