CMS Posts Corrected Home Health Agency Provider Preview Reports and Star Rating Preview Reports

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) announced that the Home Health Agency (HHA) Provider Preview Reports and Quality of Patient Care Star Rating Preview Reports that were posted on June 25, 2020 contained an error. The previous reports contained the HHA observed values instead of the risk adjusted values. The reports have been corrected and are now available. You can find both reports by selecting “My Reports” in the Internet Quality Improvement and Evaluation System (iQIES). These reports preview data that will be displayed on the Home Health Compare website beginning around Oct. 30, 2020. Providers are encouraged to save a copy of their Preview Reports for later reference.

Providers have until Aug. 20, 2020 to review their performance data. Corrections to the underlying data will not be permitted during this time; however, providers can request Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) review of their data during the preview period if they believe the quality measure scores that are displayed within their Preview Reports are inaccurate.
