New Five-Star Quality Rating System previews available Tuesday
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services help line will reopen Tuesday and remain open until Feb. 3 to field any questions or concerns about Five-Star ratings. The hotline is reopened quarterly and is available at a number sent directly to providers previously. Providers also can pose their questions through BetterCare@cms.hhs.gov.
The new Five-Star ratings will be made public Jan. 28, when they will be unveiled on CMS's “Nursing Home Compare” Web site.
