The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has added the first data from the new Medicare spending per beneficiary measure to the Hospital Compare website (https://www.medicare.gov/hospitalcompare/search.html). The “Spending per Hospital Patient with Medicare” measure shows whether Medicare spends more (>1), less (<1) or about the same (1) as the national average per episode of care for patients treated at a specific hospital. The measure includes any Medicare Part A and Part B payments for services provided to a patient three days prior to a hospital stay, during the hospital stay and 30 days after discharge from the hospital.
