The COVID-19 pandemic was declared a statewide public health emergency by Governor Eric Holcomb on March 6, 2020. In response to the statewide public health emergency, several policy changes were temporarily put into place throughout the declared public health emergency.
While some flexibilities were approved as part of the federal public health emergency through the Appendix K process, others were temporarily approved through Executive Orders and The Indiana Health Coverage Programs. Executive Order 22-09 rescinded the statewide COVID 19 Public Health Emergency Declaration effective March 3, 2022. With the end of the Statewide PHE, the code waiver flexibilities noted below are no longer in effect. Bureau of Developmental Disabilities Services is allowing for a 30 day transition period out of the code waiver flexibilities noted below.
The other flexibilities approved though Appendix K, as part of the federal public health emergency, will remain in effect for up to six months after the Federal Public Health Emergency ends.
