Spotlight on CMS & HHS Updates to Combat Disasters

A Blanket 1135 Waiver by CMS in troubled times allows for more flexibility. Get the Latest updates on Disaster Preparation, Guidelines, and Compliance by
Kristin J. Webb-Hollering, BA

 

The critical importance of steady healthcare is essential to combat disasters like Hurricanes’ Harvey, Irma, and Maria. Federal efforts aim to assist providers and their staffs through crises like these, but in the aftermath as practices try to rebuild, the process of leafing through complicated waivers, claims, and resources can be daunting.

 

Find out how to prepare ahead of time with helpful tips, details, and insight from TCI’s compliance editor, Kristin J. Webb-Hollering, on how to combat disaster fatigue before it starts.

 

You’ll learn:

  • An overview of the Stafford Act & federal declarations
  • The reimbursement guidelines of the 1135 Waiver
  • The HIPAA rules under an 1135 Waiver and Public Health crisis
  • The who, what, where, when, and why of a Public Health Emergency
  • CMS restrictions, exceptions, and more during and after a disaster
  • Coding and billing resources for submitting claims after a catastrophic event
  • The lowdown on timetables, extensions, geography, and state information
  • Health IT basics on securing health records and systems
  • How the National Disaster Medical System Definitive Care Reimbursement Program works
  • Provider information on compliance and reimbursement relief efforts in the wake of Hurricanes’ Harvey, Irma, and Maria
