On July 27, 2016, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) released the controversial Overall Hospital Quality Star Ratings,1 despite concerns raised by hospitals and Congress that CMS had not provided enough details regarding the methodology, shared the underlying data, or responded adequately to comments from various stakeholders. Federal legislation has now been introduced to have CMS take down the Star Ratings.2
