CMS Postpones the July 2018 Update to the Hospital Quality Star Ratings

June 15, 2018—The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) June 12 announced that it is postponing the July 2018 release of updated Overall Hospital Quality Star Ratings on the Hospital Compare website “to give time for additional analysis of the impact of the changes to some of the measures . . . and to address stakeholder concerns.”

As part of this process, CMS intends to seek feedback from a multidisciplinary Technical Expert Panel (TEP), a Provider Leadership Workgroup, and a public comment period.

CMS did not release a date for when the next update to the Star Ratings will be published, and will keep the December 2017 Star Ratings posted to the Hospital Compare website for the time being.
