Hospital-Acquired Condition Reduction Program

Metadata Updated: February 23, 2019

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 a hospital’s measure, domain and Total HAC scores. The domain scores comprise the Total HAC Score.
