UPDATE | May 10, 2023

The federal government’s COVID-19 public health emergency will end this Thursday, May 11 – ushering a new chapter in the fight against the disease. The end of the COVID-19 emergency removes certain coverage requirements from health insurance plans, with implications for how your employees access COVID-19 tests, vaccines and treatments.

It is important for employers take steps to understand these changes, communicate clearly about the end of the COVID-19 emergency and make it as easy as possible for your workers to stay healthy.
