News Update - Hurricane Florence Relief Initiatives

 The NC Medical Board is now moving forward with emergency rules to replace the emergency licensure policy that was adopted in advance of Hurricane Florence.  The emergency rules establish the policy in a more formal way and ensure that the emergency licensure practices developed by the Board will be “on the books” going forward.

 An emergency rule goes into effect Oct. 2 with no public hearing or public comments period. To give the public and stakeholders time to provide feedback, a set of identical temporary rules is also being proposed. There will be a public hearing on Oct. 4 and comments will be accepted through Oct. 19.  To learn more, visit the NC Medical Board website 

 The NC Medical Society has resource information to help patients get the care they need through their Disaster Preparedness and Resource Center.  A Disaster Relief Program has also been created to collect donations to help practices financially as they struggle to return to treating patients in their communities.  Learn more below.
