Medicare CMS Awards LifeCare a 5/5 Rating!

Medicare CMS Awards LifeCare a 5/5 Rating!

Posted By || 8-Feb-2016

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) introduced an additional new set of star ratings, based on patient experience, for home health agencies on January 28, 2016. In 2015, our team at LifeCare Home Health & In-Home Services was among just 2.6% of agencies in the country to receive a 5 / 5 Medicare rating from CMS. This is a huge accomplishment as we strive to raise the standards of home healthcare and lead the field in developing new and effective programs for quality patient service.

The five new star ratings cover important areas of home health care as perceived by the patient and include:

  1. Care of Patients
  2. Communication Between Providers and Patients
  3. Specific Care Issues
  4. Overall Rating of Care Provided by the Home Health Agency
  5. Survey Summary star rating

Our comprehensive approach to home healthcare enables us to exceed expectations in these five categories. As patients and care providers use this data to make the right choice for care, we hope to gain further influence in our field and continue to effectively provide solutions for the healthcare industry.
