Medicare Patient Cost Burden Estimator for Hospital-Caused Conditions

Home health care visitWhile a patient is in the hospital, sometimes errors occur that lead to infections or injuries to the patient.  In most cases, the patient and his or her loved ones will be left with the cost of care for this avoidable occurrence and loss of time away from their lives.  Hospitals may not disclose these occurrences to patients or their loved ones.

Please type in the corresponding number of the Hospital-Acquired Condition from the HAC list, then press the Enter key to see an estimate of additional costs incurred. Please note: The Patient Cost Burden may be different for each individual due to your unique situation, i.e., age, where you live, other conditions, etc.
