CMS announces delay in posting preview reports for October 2019 refresh

Provider preview reports and star ratings preview reports for the October 2019 Home Health Compare refresh will be delayed until early July.

CMS announced the delay on its website June 24.

Preview reports for the October refresh were expected July 3. The delay is due to CMS efforts to align display of two measures what appears on the compare sites in other post-acute care settings.

Effective October 2019, point estimates and confidence intervals will be added for the measures “discharge to community” and “potentially preventable readmissions.”
