CMS's Internal Controls Over Hospital Preparedness for Emerging Infectious Disease Epidemics Such as Coronavirus Disease 2019
Hospitals that participate in the Medicare program must comply with Federal participation requirements, including requirements that hospitals engage in all-hazards emergency preparedness planning. On February 1, 2019, CMS added planning for emerging infectious diseases to its emergency preparedness guidance. We will audit CMS's internal controls over hospital preparedness for an emerging infectious disease epidemic, such as coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). We will also audit hospital compliance with CMS's emergency preparedness requirements.
