Description

On September 16, 2016, CMS published a Final Rule (42 CFR Parts 403, 416, 418, et al.) establishing new emergency preparedness requirements for Medicare and Medicaid participating providers and suppliers. The regulations expand the CMS Conditions of Participation (CoP) and apply to all 17 provider and supplier types, including hospitals, critical access hospitals (CAHs), Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) and Rural Health Clinics (RHCs).

The rule responded to concerns from Congress, the healthcare community, and the public regarding the ability of healthcare systems to plan and execute appropriate emergency response procedures for disasters. To accomplish this goal, healthcare systems must develop an effective emergency preparedness program that allows them to meet the compliance requirements set out within the final rule by November 15, 2017.

Each provider and supplier type has its own set of Emergency Preparedness regulations incorporated into its set of CoP or requirements for certification (CfC). The four provisions of the Emergency Preparedness Program for all provider types are:

- Risk Assessment & Planning
- Policies & Procedures
- Communication Plan
- Training & Testing Program
