Emergency Policies Remain In Place

On July 15, 2022, Xavier Becerra, Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services, announced that the public health emergency related to COVID-19 still exists and therefore the public health emergency determination originally announced on January 31, 2020, continues. The determination continues in 90-day increments.

States must maintain Medicaid eligibility standards and cannot make procedures more restrictive than they were on January 31, 2020. In addition, if a Medicaid recipient is validly enrolled in any Medicaid program, then continuous enrollment applies. If a recipient is validly enrolled and reports a change in circumstance, then the change is processed as a redetermination but the individual is still deemed as being validly enrolled.
