Hurricane Michael: HHS Secretary Azar Declares Public Health Emergency Across Florida

Posted on in VGM News, People Helping People, Government and Advocacy

“Hurricane Michael poses a significant threat to the health and safety of those in its path,” Secretary Azar said. “These actions help ensure that our fellow Americans who rely on Medicare and Medicaid have continuous access to the care they need.”

Our thoughts are with those impacted by Hurricane Michael. Whether it be hurricanes, tornadoes, flooding, or wildfires, companies of all sizes can never be too prepared. CLICK HERE for resources available to suppliers to help navigate throughout the recovery process.

We hope and pray that all on the Southeast remain safe from the approaching storm in the coming days. We have complete confidence that HME suppliers will be there caring for patients in need of help once the storm passes. VGM will be actively engaged with CMS, relaying any information relevant to the storm as it becomes available.
