How Employers Prepare: End of Covid Health Emergencies - McDermott

How Employers Should Prepare for the End of the Covid-19 National and Public Health Emergencies


The Biden administration recently announced its intention to end the COVID-19 National Emergency and the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency effective May 11, 2023. These emergency declarations have been in place for nearly three years and have enabled the government to modify certain coverage requirements of Medicare, Medicaid and private insurance plans, as well as benefits administration rules. The end of the PHE and NE may mean added costs for benefits plans and new questions regarding compliance.

Join partners from McDermott’s Employee Benefits team for a webinar exploring the impacts of the PHE and NE on employee benefit plans and how employers and benefit plan sponsors should prepare.

Topics covered will include:

  • Coverage Requirements for COVID-19 Testing and Vaccinations
  • Impacts on Telehealth
  • Mental Health Parity Act
  • High Deductible Health Plans, Health Savings Accounts and Employee Assistance Plans
  • Deadline Tolling

CLE credit will be available.
