COVID-19 Public Health Emergency Ending


With this webpage, the Michigan Primary Care Association is here to help guide health center members as the Biden Administration has indicated its intent to end the COVID-19 public health emergency on May 11, 2023. The ending of the COVID-19 PHE will impact:

  • COVID vaccines, testing, treatments 
  • Workplace safety (Infection control, OSHA compliance, CDC guidance, and PPE) 
  • Finance/Billing/payment policies, including telehealth reimbursement. 
  • HRSA Program flexibilities and COVID-19 activities 
  • Other benefits and programs that affect special populations and social determinants (housing, food benefits, etc.) 
  • Medicaid Redetermination and many Telehealth policies were separated from the PHE through the Consolidated Appropriations Act.  However, MPCA will still include Medicaid Redetermination and Telehealth information and resources on this page. 

MPCA will update this page with key information for health centers to navigate the unwinding of the PHE. Check back weekly for the most up-to-date resources and information.
