Updated RHC Certification Rules

November 2, 2016

Be sure to check out CMS's updated rule for RHC certification regarding emergency preparedness.  The new requirement defines standards for: 


  • Emergency plans, which must be updated annually

  • Emergency preparedness testing and training

  • Clinic policies and procedures on shelter, evacuation, and more 


You can read the full amendment here.  


Although the rules are “effective” on November 15, 2016, CMS will not be enforce them until November 15, 2017.  This will give clinics one year to become compliant with the new requirements.
