CMS Rule

We are here to help you meet the CMS requirements of Risk Assessment, Preparedness Policies and Procedures, Communications Plan, and Training and Exercise Program. This is what our Coalition does for all of our members all year. Join us!

Currently, membership is FREE. We receive ASPR funding to help support our Coalition’s activities. This means you do NOT pay to be a member and you do NOT pay to receive help in meeting your CMS requirements.

Now that you’ve found us, click on our Contact Us tab and fill out the form. We will send you an email with updated information about meeting locations, scheduling one-to-one meetings to help you prepare your facility, and add you to our coalition distribution list.

We look forward to meeting you!
