Peer Group Bar Charts
Charts displaying, for each of the areas identified as potentially at risk for improper Medicare payments, the target area percents that are at the 80th, 50th and 20th percentiles for critical access hospitals in three categories: total number of discharges, location and ownership type. The statistics were calculated for CAH discharges ending in fiscal year 2021 (October 1, 2020-September 30, 2021). For details on how these charts were developed please see the CAH Peer Group Methodology (PDF, updated 5/2/19). For a listing of all CAHs and their peer group classification please see the CAHs by peer group file (XLSX, updated 04/21/22). Note: use Control+F or the “Find” button to search the file for a CMS Certification Number (provider number) or provider name.
