Hurricane Michael and Medicare Disaster Related Florida and Georgia Claims MLN Matters Article — Revised

The President declared a state of emergency for the states of Florida and Georgia, and the HHS Secretary declared a Public Health Emergency, which allows for CMS programmatic waivers based on Section 1135 of the Social Security Act. A revised MLN Matters Special Edition Article on Hurricane Michael and Medicare Disaster Related Florida and Georgia Claims is available. Learn about blanket waivers CMS issued for the impacted geographical areas. These waivers will prevent gaps in access to care for beneficiaries impacted by the emergency. This article was revised to add information regarding the emergency declared for the state of Georgia.
