Hospital Recognition Programs

As part of the Affordable Care Act, we’re changing the way we pay hospitals.

Rewarding Excellence

Instead of just compensating hospitals for the number of procedures they perform, we want to reward them for the quality of care they provide. We call this program Rewarding Excellence. We base awards on how closely hospitals follow best practices and how well they care for patients. We believe in focusing on transparency in the health care system and rewarding the best-performing providers.
