The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) announced on August 18 that it has developed a roadmap for the eventual end of the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency (PHE). During the COVID-19 PHE, CMS has used emergency waiver authorities to establish regulatory flexibilities for providers that enabled access to health care. Most of these waivers and flexibilities will terminate at the end of the PHE. CMS developed an initiative for reestablishing program requirements and health and safety standards when the PHE ends.
