Five-Star: Quality Measure Domain
Rating Threshold Changes April 2022 Refresh

 

The Quality Measure (QM) threshold changes that were scheduled for April 2020 were implemented in the April 2022 refresh.

 

In March 2019, CMS planned to update the Quality Measure (QM) rating thresholds every six months, however, this was delayed due to COVID-19.

The plan includes increasing the thresholds by 50% of the average rate of improvement in Quality Measure (QM) rating scores.

 

For example, if there is an average rate of improvement of 2%, the Quality Measure (QM) rating thresholds would be raised 1%.

 

These new thresholds and actions are aimed to incentivize continuous quality improvement and reduce the need to have larger adjustments to the thresholds in the future.
