COVID-19 Public Health Emergency

In January 2020, the federal government declared a public health emergency (PHE) due to COVID-19. For Medicaid, the PHE helped prevent beneficiaries from losing their health coverage during the pandemic, even if someone’s eligibility changed. The PHE also helped health care providers keep their practices running so they could deliver care to Medicaid beneficiaries. 

NC Medicaid wants to help beneficiaries and providers understand how the end of the PHE may impact them and provide steps to navigate these changes.
