Beginning in July of 2015, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) will be implementing a star rating system for home health agencies in the U.S. This rating system will appear on the Home Health Compare (HHC) website and will be available to consumers at no charge. Although this information is already available online, this star rating system will summarize the current measures for health care provider performance and will allow consumers to compare data more quickly. Currently, visitors to the site can scroll through different categories and view check marks and comments in different areas of the home health agency’s offerings. The star rating system will streamline HHC, and will allow consumers to make the best decisions possible for their health care.
