Emergency Preparedness Training by November 15, 2017WEDNESDAY, MAY 10, 2017
Medicare and Medicaid participating facilities will be required to complete training for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services' (CMS) new Emergency Preparedness Final Rule by the time the rule becomes effective on November 15, 2017. On March 24, 2017, CMS released information stating that providers and suppliers should seek out and participate in a full-scale, community-based exercise with their local and /or state emergency agencies and health care coalitions and to have completed a tabletop exercise by the implementation date.
CMS launched an Emergency Preparedness Rule website that includes an Emergency Preparedness Checklist, a state by state listing of health care coalitions, FAQs, templates and other resources to help organizations implement the new requirements.
