Pneumonia Payment

The pneumonia 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 30 days following a hospital admission for pneumonia. CMS began publicly reporting the pneumonia payment measure in 2015.

Pneumonia payment measure results are 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 are conducted.
