Our thoughts are with those impacted by natural disasters.
The President declared a state of emergency and the HHS Secretary declared a Public Health Emergency for all states impacted by these hurricanes, which allow for CMS programmatic waivers based on Section 1135 of the Social Security Act. All related Public Health Declaration and the Social Security Act waivers may be found on the CMS Emergency Response and Recovery website.
CMS will continue to work with the affected states. The agency continues to update their emergency response page with important information for state and local officials, providers, healthcare facilities and the public.
Please continue to visit this page for additional details, materials, and updates.
