This section provides information regarding the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Servies (CMS) developed helpful information regarding the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19).

Based on current COVID-19 trends, the Department of Health and Human Services announced that the federal Public Health Emergency (PHE) for COVID-19, declared under Section 319 of the Public Health Service Act, expired at the end of the day on May 11, 2023.

While some of the changes to many aspects of health care delivery during the COVID-19 PHE will be permanent or extended due to Congressional action, some waivers and flexibilities expired, as they were intended to respond to the rapidly evolving pandemic, not to permanently replace standing rules.
