See Medicaid admission rates at 611 nursing homes in New York State

State and federal regulations prohibit nursing homes from discriminating against individuals because of their payment source.

But New York's top nursing homes admit poor people at a lower rate than the state's worst nursing homes.

At the five-star nursing homes, 7 percent of the new residents in 2017 were Medicaid admissions – poor people whose bills were paid by Medicaid from Day One, The Buffalo News determined from state Department of Health data from 2017.

At the one-star nursing homes, 15 percent of the new residents were Medicaid admissions.

Below is a searchable database showing every nursing home in New York, its location by city and county, its federal star rating (5 is  best, 1 is worst), its number of poor people admitted on Medicaid in 2017, its total admissions in 2017, and the percentage of its admissions that were Medicaid admissions. To search for a specific nursing home or all of the nursing homes in a city or county, click the magnifying glass symbol on the top right and type in the name of the home, the city or the county.
