Additional Medicare Nursing Home Ownership Data Publicly Available

September 27, 2022

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), through the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), has made additional data publicly available on the ownership of all Medicare-certified nursing homes.  For the first time, state licensing officials, state and federal law enforcement, researchers, advocates and the public will be able to identify common owners of nursing homes across nursing home locations. This information can be used with other data sources to assess the performance of facilities under common ownership, such as owners affiliated with multiple nursing homes with a record of poor performance.  The release of the data is in support of the Biden-Harris Administration's effort to improve nursing home transparency.
