CMS launches 'dry run' test of hospital quality star rating system

CMS has started a 'dry run' test of its proposed star rating system for overall hospital-level quality.

The test enables hospitals to ask questions and submit feedback. Every hospital will receive a Hospital-Specific Report, which includes its ratings and the measures used to calculate them.

The hospitals' feedback may contribute to changes in the methodology before the star rankings are posted on the hospital compare page of Medicare.gov next year.

The test will run through August 17.
