March 5, 2019 CMS announced new guidelines for calculating 5-star ratings. We made two tools that aid providers, provider owners, and hospitals in seeing how these changes will affect CMS SNF 5-Star ratings for buildings they care about.
The Rating changes & outcomes page summarizes the changes and shows their effect on the national level. It includes specific breakdowns of how the scores are calculated and whats changed with the new guidelines.
The Rating estimate tool calculates our estimate of the stars a provider will receive once the changes are implemented. It first shows you the estimate for your state, then you can search for and see providers of interest.
