CMS Expands Proposed Five-Star Rating System for Providers

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services have announced another expansion to their planned five-star rating system for various medical facilities. At present, CMS uses star ratings to allow consumers to compare Medicare Advantage plans and nursing homes on its website.

Over the past six months, CMS has stated that it would include star ratings on its Physician Compare website. Now, CMS will also include star rankings for hospitals, home health agencies, and dialysis providers. CMS plans on rolling out the new star ranking system in late 2014 to early 2015.
