The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has issued QSO-23-18-NH. These changes were initiated on June 28.
The memo informs providers that CMS will include ownership and operatorship affiliation information for Nursing Home Care Compare on their website to increase the transparency of nursing homes’ ownership and operatorship for consumers, allowing them to make more informed decisions about their care.
In addition, the CMS website will provide combined inspection, staffing, quality, and other performance metrics across groups of nursing homes with shared ownership and operatorship to track and identify owners and operators across states to highlight previous problems with promoting resident health and safety.
