The January 2023 announcement by the Biden Administration that the COVID-19 public health emergency (PHE) would expire on May 11, 2023, signaled the impending termination of numerous federal regulatory waivers and flexibilities. In response, PYA’s Martie Ross and Kathy Reep created the End-of-the-PHE Compliance Checklist to help providers comply with the changes.
The checklist is continually updated and has been featured in the Report on Medicare Compliance, a national publication produced by the Health Care Compliance Association (HCCA) to provide updates on compliance strategies specifically pertaining to Medicare. It also has been cited as a resource by the Northwest Regional Telehealth Resource Center, an affiliate of the National Consortium of Telehealth Resource Centers.
The updated checklist includes information regarding vaccination requirements, emergency preparedness testing requirements, the Medicare Diabetes Prevention Program, controlled-substance prescriptions via telehealth, the 340B drug discount program, and other areas recently announced by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
PYA has produced thought leadership and multiple resources to help the healthcare community prepare for the end of the PHE. In addition to the compliance checklist, resources include webinars and insights from PYA experts.
