CMS Announces Resources and Flexibilities to Assist with the Public Health Emergency in the Territory of Guam Due to Recent Typhoon

CMS announced additional resources and flexibilities available in response to the recent typhoon in Guam. CMS is working closely with the Territory of Guam to put these flexibilities in place to ensure those affected by this natural disaster have access to the care they need – when they need it most.

On June 2, 2023, HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra determined that a Public Health Emergency exists in the Territory of Guam as a result of the consequences of Typhoon Mawar beginning on May 22, 2023, and continuing.

CMS stands ready to assist with resources and waivers to ensure hospitals and other facilities can continue to operate and provide access to care to those impacted by the consequences of the typhoon.
