What is a Public Health Emergency (PHE)?

The PHE was declared by the federal government in 2020 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. For Medicaid, the PHE established a continuous coverage requirement. This means that people who receive Medicaid were not required to renew their eligibility, as required in the past to maintain coverage.
