Webinar: 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 by 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 that the end of the PHE and NE will have on employee benefit plans and what actions employers and benefit plan sponsors should be taking to 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.
