This webpage includes information on, and links to, waivers issued by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) following hurricanes and tropical storms over the last few years. This information may be helpful to planners in understanding how requirements may change following a declared public health emergency to allow healthcare facilities to provide necessary care to those affected by the disaster. Information on waivers issued for other emergencies may be found on the CMS website, under “Current Emergencies,” or “Past Emergencies.”
