An Update on New Five-Star Ratings

Lisa Volk in Clinical & Quality

AHCA expected the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to publish new Five-Star rankings on its Nursing Home Compare (NHC) website yesterday. The ratings will reflect new metrics and methodological changes that expand the quality measure component of the system. However, AHCA has been notified that the rankings will not be published this week. As soon as CMS does "go live", AHCA will inform its’ members. See attached memo for more information.
