Event Details

Are you facing the looming deadline for CMS emergency rule compliance?

Are you a new provider type and have no idea where to start?

Are you a community leader or responding agency that wants to know how you fit in?

From Richmond to the Tidewater to DC, this one-day workshop will help healthcare facilities of ANY SIZE understand the rule and the actions they need to take before November to avoid losing Medicare and Medicaid funding and costly fines for non-compliance.

Join fellow healthcare providers, county and state officials, and community partners to access tools and strategies that will help you on the road to CMS emergency rule compliance. Work with CMS experts in a small venue in a highly interactive environment to get your organization much further along in the process. We have invited community leaders and healthcare leaders to address the group over lunch. 

We will provide a continental breakfast, lunch, and workshop materials, including a thumb drive with very useful tools and templates to help you back at work! At the end of the day, we will offer light refreshments for an optional networking event.

This is NOT a sales event; this is a learning workshop designed to help our communities.
No materials will be offered for purchase.
