Governor Holcomb signs executive order to extend public health emergency
Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb signed executive orders on Wednesday to extend the public health emergency and maintain orders that help Hoosiers impacted by COVID-19 across the state.
The extension of these orders will extend certain assistance measures, including:
Enhanced federal funding to the state for Medicaid programs to help cover the costs of residents who enrolled in the programs because of the pandemic
An additional $95 per month in federal food assistance for 200,000 eligible households
The state health commissioner serving as the statewide ordering physician, making it easier for Hoosiers to get vaccines through pharmacies and other health facilities
These executive orders will expire on December 31.
