CAHPS Hospice Survey Star Ratings (11/08/2021)

In the FY 2022 Hospice Final Rule, CMS finalized public reporting of CAHPS Hospice Survey Star Ratings. Beginning with the August 2022 refresh of Care Compare, a Family Caregiver Survey Rating Summary star will be publicly reported for all hospices with 75 or more completed surveys over the reporting period. Star Ratings will be updated every other quarter.

Hospices will have the opportunity to see their CAHPS Hospice Survey Star Ratings in their official CMS Preview Report during the provider preview period prior to each update of Care Compare. Hospices will first see their Star Ratings in their Preview Reports during the preview periods for the February 2022 and May 2022 updates of Care Compare. This will be a “dry run.” CAHPS Hospice Survey Star Ratings will not be publicly reported in February or May 2022. The reporting period for the dry run is October 1, 2018 – December 31, 2019; July 1, 2020 – March 31, 2021.
