In the early days of the pandemic, federal and state governments quickly implemented regulatory flexibilities to ensure that Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries could receive care safely and in their own community. As policymakers prepare for the eventual end of the COVID-19 public health emergency (PHE), federal and state policymakers will need to determine the path forward for the Medicare and Medicaid flexibilities that were implemented in response to the immediate needs of the pandemic. This virtual public event will feature a diverse panel of experts to discuss considerations for using the PHE flexibilities to improve person-centered, equitable care for older adults. This event will include insights from the recently produced “Leveraging COVID-19 Public Health Emergency Flexibilities to Advance Person-Centered Care for Older Adults and People with Complex Care Needs: A Roadmap for Policymakers”.
