Public Health Emergency (PHE) COVID-19 Regulations

The Iowa Department of Human Services issued IL 2315-MC-FFS-CVD on Sunday, February 20, 2022.  The Informational Letter is directed to Iowa Medicaid Providers, but it contains a message that I thought was worth sharing.  The message in the paragraph beneath the bolded Please note is what I’m pointing out:

CMS is telling states that they “will provide a 60-day notice in advance of the official end of the federal PHE.”  This is something that continues to be asked in many HC community listservs. The current federal PHE extends into mid-April 2022.
