Abstract

In July 2012, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services ceased hospital Medicaid reimbursements for certain health care-acquired conditions. Using billing data from 2008-2014, we found no impact of this policy on rates of 2 targeted conditions, vascular catheter-associated infections and catheter-associated urinary tract infections, among Medicaid or non-Medicaid patients.
