The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is planning for the federal Public Health Emergency (PHE) for COVID-19, declared under Section 319 of the Public Health Service Act, to expire at the end of the day on May 11, 2023.
MDHHS has issued many COVID-19 response Medicaid policy bulletins and L letters which changed existing policy and processes under the guidance of the federal PHE. Providers will see an increase in updated COVID-19 response policy bulletins and L letters to accommodate the end of the PHE. Refer to the PHE policy crosswalk table below to see current and upcoming policy changes.
We encourage providers to take the following steps to prepare for the end of the federal PHE:
- Review the PHE policy crosswalk table webpage to see which policy bulletins or L letters may impact your provider type.
- Continue to verify beneficiary eligibility prior to services. Visit the Eligibility and Enrollment webpage for step-by-step instructions.
- Eligibility redetermination or renewal dates can be viewed within the CHAMPS eligibility inquiry screen.
- Help beneficiaries verify or update their contact information in MIBridges.
