CMS Pandemic Plan: Updated

CMS Pandemic Plan: Updated

CMS released an updated version of their CMS Pandemic Plan, which provides details on the agency’s pandemic response — actions the agency is taking to support the healthcare system and beneficiaries. This revised CMS Pandemic Plan reflects and accounts for the complex and tightly coupled systems in which CMS operations and policy decisions are made. Decisions, data, processes, partner engagements, and key actions were captured to reflect the nimbleness needed to successfully respond to the ongoing Pandemic and to ensure guidance is available for future public health emergencies. This plan is more actionable and applicable to CMS’s entire body of work. It is an organized compilation of operational plans and policy playbooks, and will guide CMS in its preparation, response, and recovery from current and future pandemic threats.
