APMA knows that our members faced an onslaught of information as the COVID-19 public health emergency (PHE) progressed, and that compliance deadlines for programs impacted by COVID-19 or financial assistance programs created to help providers through the PHE are constantly shifting and being updated. To help members stay on top of these deadlines, APMA created this resource page to lay out deadlines as they are updated or available and provide members with a direct link to the specific program.
