Interpretive Guidance for Emergency Preparedness Requirements Released

Erin Prendergast and Dana Halvorson 
The Emergency Preparedness Final Rule was released on Friday, September 16, 2016. Members impacted by the rule include SNFs, Nursing Facilities and ICF/IIDs. This final rule is not applicable to Assisted Living Providers. On June 2, 2017, CMS released the Emergency Preparedness Interpretive Guidance (IG).   AHCA members are encouraged to look through the IG. Providers will need to comply with the final rule by November 2017. AHCA is in the process of reviewing the IG now, and will send a more detailed summary out in the near future of it. Finally, you might be interested to know that AHCA has an Emergency Preparedness Final Rule Webinar Series that can be found here
