PHE will end in May 

PHE will end in May 

WASHINGTON – President Joe Biden has announced that the public health emergency will end on May 11, 2023. 

Under the last declaration in January, the PHE was set to end on April 11. 

“The advance notice goes beyond HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra’s previous guidance to health care stakeholders that the agency would provide at least 60 days advance notice before ending the PHE,” AAHomecare noted in a bulletin. 

Knowing when the PHE will end gives industry stakeholders a timeline for their work to maintain access to oxygen therapy and continuous glucose monitors for patients who qualified for these products under the PHE. 

Thanks to an omnibus bill that was passed in late 2022, 75/25 blended reimbursement rates in non- competitive bidding, non-rural areas will be in place through 2023 vs. the end of the PHE. 

The PHE first went into effect Jan. 31, 2020.
