Description: On September 16, 2016, the final rule on Emergency Preparedness Requirements for Medicare and Medicaid Participating Providers and Suppliers was published. The final rule affects all 17 types of providers and suppliers eligible for participation in the Medicare Program.  Compliance is required on November 16, 2017.  Now the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has published interpretive guidelines and survey procedures to implement the final rule in the form of a new Appendix Z of the State Operations Manual (SOM). The new interpretive guidelines provide additional information about compliance.  What, specifically, are providers and suppliers required to do to be in compliance?  What will surveyors likely review?  What areas of non-compliance are likely to result in deficiencies? The purpose of this presentation is to assist providers and suppliers to comply through practical, cost-effective activities.  There will be ample time for questions and answers to facilitate compliance.
