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

    The President declared a state of emergency for the state of Florida, and the HHS Secretary declared a Public Health Emergency, which allows for CMS programmatic waivers based on Section 1135 of the Social Security Act. An MLN Matters Special Edition Article on Hurricane Michael and Medicare Disaster Related Florida 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.
