ABSTRACT
The article presents a report by the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO), in which the agency examined the extent of private investment (PI) nursing homeownership and firms' involvement in homes' operations. The GAO determined whether Provider Enrollment, Chain, and Ownership System (PECOS) reflects PI ownership. The agency also analyzed how the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and states use ownership data for oversight.
