CMS preparing home health rating system

Home health companies, dialysis facilities and hospitals soon will be subject to a five-star rating system similar to the one that currently applies to nursing homes and Medicare Advantage plans, the Assisted Living Federation of America is reporting.

Providers would receive an overall rating as well as a separate one related to quality and other measures. Ratings would be published on the Home Health Compare website.
