On October 13, 2022, Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Xavier Becerra officially extended the public health emergency (PHE) for another 90 days to January 11, 2023. The PHE was first declared in January 2020 and has been renewed every 90 days since. The extension ensures that policies like telehealth coverage will continue. HHS officials have previously said the administration would give at least 60 days’ notice if it was planning to allow the emergency to expire.
