In March, CMS announced changes to the Five-Star Rating system that will be published on Nursing Home Compare in late April. These changes include updated thresholds for achieving the various star ratings, which will result in several potential changes to a facility's Overall ratings.  

LTC Trend Tracker has put together the 2019-Q1 Your Top-Line to show an individual facility a projection of these changes.  

All data included in the Top-Line come from the March 2019 Nursing Home Compare data release. The new ratings will be published in late April and may be different from what is projected. 

For more on Five-Star changes, attend AHCA/NCAL’s webinar here.
