To help states respond to the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the White House, the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services have invoked their emergency powers to authorize temporary flexibilities in Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP). Congress’ legislative relief packages have provided additional federal support for state Medicaid programs, subject to certain conditions.
In “Federal Declarations and Flexibilities Supporting Medicaid and CHIP COVID-19 Response Efforts Effective and Expiration Dates,” a new regulatory analysis prepared on behalf of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s State Health and Value Strategies program, Manatt Health associate Julian Polaris summarizes the time frames for these emergency measures, including the effective dates and expiration timelines dictated by law or agency guidance. The analysis also includes current end dates, which are subject to change as federal and state officials take actions to renew or terminate particular authorities.
