Health Plan Resource Guide for Hospitals and Providers Affected by Cyberattacks issued by HHS

The national resource guide of health plan contact information has been released by the Departments of Health and Human Services (HHS), Administration for Strategic Preparedness and Response (ASPR) and Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). This guide is aimed at supporting hospitals and providers affected by the Change Healthcare cyberattack, which has caused significant disruptions.

The agencies have acknowledged that some providers have had difficulty obtaining information from healthcare plans regarding payments or necessary flexibilities during this time. To address this issue, HHS, ASPR and CMS encourage hospitals and health systems to review the voluntary cybersecurity performance goals that were released earlier this year.

In addition to the resource guide, individuals can access the latest information on the cyberattack through the AHA Change Healthcare cyberattack update webpage. This website includes an announcement from CMS on accelerated and advance payments to impacted hospitals and physicians, frequently asked questions, and an informational bulletin on actions states can take to assist Medicaid providers affected by the cyberattack.

For further questions or information, individuals can reach out to Molly Smith, AHA group vice president of policy, at mollysmith@aha.org.
