Below is a list of resources dedicated to supporting all those affected by Hurricane Florence.
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) offers support to North Carolina and South Carolina in response to Hurricane Florence. CMS is working to ensure hospitals and other facilities can continue operations and provide access to care despite the effects of Hurricane Florence. CMS has waived certain Medicare, Medicaid, and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) requirements; created special enrollment opportunities for individuals to access healthcare immediately; and taken steps to ensure dialysis patients obtain critical services.
For updates on current CMS emergency information and links to NC and SC 1812(f) SNF waivers, NC and SC PHE declaration, and NC and SC 1135 waivers, please click here.
ASCO has compiled resources for cancer patients and providers affected by Hurricane Florence.
North Carolina Medical Society
The ReadyNC Mobile App provides real-time information on traffic and weather conditions, river levels, evacuations, and power outages. This tool is free for North Carolina residents.
