Hip/Knee Arthroplasty Payment

The hip/knee arthroplasty payment measure includes Medicare fee-for-service (FFS) beneficiaries aged 65 or older and assesses payments across multiple care settings, services, and supplies in the 90 days following a hospital admission for hip/knee arthroplasty. CMS began publicly reporting the hip/knee arthroplasty payment measure in 2017.

Hip/knee arthroplasty payment measure results will be updated annually. As part of ongoing measure surveillance, analyses that provide a comprehensive overview of national results on the measure or investigate select hospital practices that may impact hospital results will be conducted.
