CMS: Emergency Preparedness Standards For Medicare & Medicaid Providers

CMS has issued a proposed rule to “establish consistent emergency preparedness requirements for health care providers participating in Medicare and Medicaid, increase patient safety during emergencies, and establish a more coordinated response to natural and man-made disasters.”

In the past several years, the U.S. has seen several natural and man-made disasters making readiness for public health emergency a top priority. This notice of proposed rulemaking would establish preparedness to ensure providers adequately plan for disasters.
