CMS recently released an updated "frequently asked questions" document for the Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement (CJR) program. Of interest in that FAQ was statistics regarding the number of hospitals currently participating in CJR. As most followers of mobile payment programs are aware, CMS reclassified 33 of the 67 formerly-mandatory Metropolitan statistical areas (MSAs) to be voluntary, allowing hospitals in those MSAs to cease participation in the CJR program.
