On November 16, 2017, new CMS Emergency Preparedness Requirements will take effect. The new rules apply to providers participating in Medicare and Medicaid. They require most provider types to have in place emergency preparedness programs that include four main elements:

  • emergency plans based on risk assessment using an all-hazards approach
  • policies and procedures based on the plan and risk assessment
  • emergency communications planning, and
  • training and testing for staff.

Any long-term care facility, hospital, hospice, home health agency, or other provider participating in Medicare and Medicaid will be required to meet the new emergency preparedness compliance standards.

IlluminAge Communication Partners, with affiliate Fire and Life Safety, Inc., has developed a step-by-step checklist, training DVD, and emergency preparedness app to help providers understand and meet the new requirements.
