Effective November 16, 2017 home health, hospice and other Medicare and Medicaid-participating providers must meet extensive new emergency preparedness requirements, including the ability to demonstrate that they have: 
Developed an emergency plan for a full range of emergencies specific to their agency’s location;
Developed and implemented policies and procedures based on the plan and risk assessment;
Developed and maintain a communication plan compliant with state and federal law so patient care is       properly coordinated with other providers, health departments and emergency systems; and
Developed training and testing programs and participated in drills and exercises to test the plan.

To help you ensure timely compliance, the National Association for Home Care & Hospice, participating members of the NAHC Forum of State Associations, and RBC Limited are offering the following emergency preparedness product package — including the newly-revised HOME HEALTH CARE & HOSPICE EMERGENCY DISASTER WORKBOOK and its just-released companion THE DISASTER PREPAREDNESS TOOLKIT —  for a SINGLE LOW PRICE of $324 that includes shipping and handling.   Learn More
