CMS to update star ratings methodology in 2021

CMS will update its methodology for the Overall Hospital Quality Star Ratings in 2021, the agency announced Aug. 19.

CMS aims to share proposed methodology changes with the public next year and finalize them prior to its 2021 star ratings update.

Proposed changes will be largely based on public feedback. The agency posted a summary of more than 800 comments it received during a public comment period on the hospital star ratings that ended in March 2019.

CMS will still update the star ratings in early 2020 using its current methodology. The last update occurred in February 2019.
