MHCA Provides Feedback to US Government Accountability Office (GAO)

In response to a request from US Senator Grassley, the GAO is examining CMS's Five-Star Rating System and its nursing home Care Compare website (formerly the Nursing Home Compare site). During this review the GAO will be reviewing the strengths and weaknesses of the rating system in identifying high and low performing nursing homes and the extent to which the website contains accurate and meaningful data with which the public can compare nursing homes' quality of care and safety.

Last week, members of MHCA staff participated in an interview with the GAO to provide feedback on behalf of our nursing home members. We appreciate the opportunity to provide such feedback and we will continue to strongly advocate for our members at the state and national level.
