Hurricane Dorian and Medicare Disaster Resources from CMS
The Secretary of the Department of Health & Human Services (HSS) declared a Public Health Emergency (PHE) in the states of Florida, Georgia and South Carolina as well as the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. The HHS Secretary authorized waivers and modifications under Section 1135 of the Social Security Act. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is issuing blanket waivers consistent with those issued for past PHE declarations. These waivers prevent gaps in access to care for beneficiaries impacted by the disasters/emergency.
