HHS Extends COVID-19 Public Health Emergency

On July 23, Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Alex Azar signed an extension of the COVID-19 public health emergency. HHS has issues a number of regulatory waivers to help providers respond to COVID-19, including flexibilities for telehealth that have been impactful for substance use disorder patients and providers.

NAADAC is pleased that HHS is extending these flexibilities for another 90 days to allow additional time for Congress and HHS to continue working with stakeholders to determine which telehealth waivers should be made permanent.
