MANDATE: All Healthcare Providers Must Comply

to New Rules or Face Loss of Medicare Funding

CMS 3178 Compliance

MANDATE: All Healthcare Providers Must Comply to New Rules or Face Loss of Medicare Funding

“All Hazards” Assessment, Planning and Preparation Deadline is Nov. 15, 2017

On September 16, 2016, six weeks before America’s “historic” election, the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) published CMS-3178 - The Final Rule for Healthcare Emergency Preparedness. The purpose of this new regulation is to:

(1)    Establish consistent emergency preparedness requirements across provider and supplier networks,

(2)    Establish a more coordinated response to natural and man-made disasters, and

(3)    Increase patient safety during emergencies.

This is not a sleepy regulation that gives the healthcare industry up to five years to prepare, like HIPAA (Healthcare Insurance Portability and Accountability ACT).

This rule mandates that if healthcare facilities do not comply by NOVEMBER 15, 2017, they risk not receiving Medicare and Medicaid reimbursements in December!

Who does this effect? This applies to seventeen Medicare and Medicaid provider sectors, ranging from Home Healthcare workers to major Cancer Treatment centers, medical laboratories and everything in between.

Beyond the techno jargon and acronyms, the goals of the Rule recognize that there are systemic gaps in the emergency Planning and Implementation process that must be closed by establishing consistency and encouraging coordination across the Emergency Preparedness sector of the United states and its possessions.
