The End of the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency

If you’re listening to this episode when it is released, we’ve gotten used to our “new normal” following the COVID-19 pandemic. This “normal” is about to shift yet again as the COVID-19 public health emergency officially comes to an end on May 11th, 2023. That’s why this week on The Amplify OT Podcast, I am sharing what to expect for the end of the COVID-19 public health emergency.

In this episode, I am covering what the end of the public health emergency (PHE) is impacting, the existing policies before we entered into the PHE, and what will happen when the waiver expires. 

In this episode, I cover:

  • The OTA and PTA supervision requirement in private practice. 
  • The ability for OTs to initiate and complete the comprehensive start of care in Home Health for Medicare Part A patients. 
  • 2 waivers relating to SNF that will be more of an impact for those working in acute care. 
  • The many changes we should prepare to see with Telehealth.
  • Upcoming changes to Medicaid.
