Part I - Introduction - Risk Assessment and Emergency Planning

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Emergency Preparedness Rule, issued in November 2016, gave Medicare and Medicaid participating providers and suppliers (including health centers) one year to meet the compliance requirements. In November 2017, CMS began surveying providers and suppliers for compliance. The surveying process has provided important insight into how health centers can demonstrate compliance with the CMS Emergency Preparedness Rule.
