Request for PHE Extension Made

In case you missed it, the American Health Care Association and National Center for Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL) sent a letter last week to U.S. Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Xavier Becerra to request an extension of the Public Health Emergency (PHE) declaration, which is set to expire in a few weeks. An extension would help long term care providers continue to offer the most efficient and effective care possible to our nation’s most vulnerable population.

The request was covered in multiple outlets including, The Altamont Enterprise Regional (Altamont, NY), KIT-FM (Yakima, WA), WIBW-TV (CBS-Topeka, KS), McKnight’s Senior Living, McKnight’s Long-Term Care News and Inside Health Policy, among others.
