The thoughts and concerns of everyone at ACHC are with those in Texas dealing with the horrific aftermath of Hurricane Harvey. As selfless healthcare workers continue to provide medical aid to patients – often at great risk to themselves – we are hopeful for the safety of providers and their patients.
We will keep those healthcare providers, their families and loved ones in our hearts. Our hope is for a rapid recovery and restoration to normalcy for those who have been impacted during this unprecedented tragedy. ACHC-accredited providers are encouraged to contact their Account Advisor with any questions or issues. ACHC encourages anyone who is so inclined to donate to a trusted charity or relief agency involved in helping hurricane victims in Texas.
When a natural disaster, extreme weather or emergency occurs that affects providers and the Medicare beneficiaries they serve, special emergency-related policies and procedures may be implemented. For detailed information on these policies and procedures, please see the CMS resources here and here.
