What’s happening: The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is providing health equity confidential feedback reports to post-acute care providers including home health (HH), inpatient rehabilitation facility (IRF), long-term care hospital (LTCH), and skilled-nursing facility (SNF) settings. 

What else to know: The reports stratify outcomes for the Discharge to Community and Medicare Spending Per Beneficiary measures by dual-enrollment status and race/ethnicity.
