Nursing Facility Quality Measure Initiative

The nursing facility Quality Measure Initiative (QMI) provides payments to facilities based on their average quality measure domain rating on the Nursing Home Compare (NHC) website. Facilities with an average star rating below 2.5 are required to file a corrective action plan with the Long Term Care Policy Section to be eligible for payment.

This webpage provides resources for facilities to understand how QMI payments are calculated and how to comply with policy requirements. Any questions about QMI payments can be emailed to
