Illinois Hospitals with Readmission Penalties

Of the 123 Illinois hospitals that have been penalized by Medicare for excessive readmissions, 93 have been received penalties in all five years since the program started. FY 2103 penalties ranged from 0.01% to the full 3%, the maximum under the Affordable Care Act provisions which mandated the incentives. Ten previously penalized facilites faced no penalty in the fifth year.
