Hospital-Acquired Condition Reduction Program

data.medicare.gov | Last Updated 29 Jan 2020

In October 2014, CMS began reducing Medicare payments for subsection (d) hospitals that rank in the worst-performing quartile with respect to hospital-acquired conditions (HACs). Hospitals with a Total HAC Score above the 75th percentile of the Total HAC Score distribution may be subject to the payment reduction. This table contains hospital’s measure scores and Total HAC scores. The measure scores comprise the Total HAC Score.
