On September 8, 2016 the Federal Register posted the final rule Emergency Preparedness Requirements for Medicare and Medicaid Participating Providers and Suppliers. The regula-tion goes into effect on November 16, 2016. Health care providers and suppliers affected by this rule are required to comply and implement all regulations one year after the effective date.

An emergency is a natural or man-made event that significantly disrupts the environment of care (damage to the hospital and grounds) that significantly disrupts care, treatment, and services (loss of power, water, etc.); or that results in a sudden, significantly changed, or increased demands for the hospital’s services.
