A word about the COVID-19 pandemic

The federal government and states declared a Public Health Emergency (PHE) when the COVID-a9 pandemic began. During the PHE, many federal and state telehealth and virtual care regulations were relaxed by a temporary rule change and/ or by a statement that specific rules would not be enforced during the PHE.

Please be aware that:

  • Temporary state /regulatory changes may differ from state to state, and many may not be the same as federal changes.
  • In most cases, the temporary changes will sunset with the end of the PHE.
  • In some instances, the temporary changes may have been made permanent with legislative or regulatory action.
  • Federal and state PHE end dates may be different.
  • Changes are occurring to these rules. Always check the publication date of the information you are reviewing to be sure that you have the most up-to-date and accurate information.
