Effective July 15, 2022, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is extending the covid-19 national public health emergency declaration for an additional 90 days. This is the sixth renewal of the declaration and extends the emergency through mid-October, 2022. Because many coverage policies are tied to the national emergency declaration, this will impact claims, particularly for telehealth treatment.

HHS has said that they will give 60 days advance notice before ending the public health emergency.
