2. HHS requested a hold on its appeal of a Texas federal court ruling that voided part of the arbitration process outlined under the No Surprises Act. 

3. Moderna submitted an emergency use authorization request to the FDA for its two-dose COVID-19 vaccine regimen in children under 6. 

4. The Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget released a report showing that permanent expansion of telehealth coverage could cost Medicare $25 billion over 10 years.
