The announcement Friday that the COVID-19 national public health emergency probably will last all year probably means COVID-related 340B program flexibilities will last all year, too.

340B COVID-19 Flexibilities Expected to Run Through the End of 2021

The acting head of the U.S. Health and Human Services Department (HHS) told state governors on Friday that the national COVID-19 public health emergency (PHE) is expected to last through the end of the year. That likely means 340B program flexibilities being granted in response to COVID-19 also will stay in place for all of 2021.

On Jan. 7, now ex-HHS Secretary Alex Azar renewed the COVID-19 emergency declaration for 90 days or until the need for emergency ends, whichever comes first. The extension took effect Jan. 21.
