Cost-to-Charge Ratio Files

The HCUP Cost-to-Charge Ratio (CCR) Files are hospital-level files designed to supplement the data elements in HCUP inpatient and emergency department databases. The CCR files can be linked with the SID, NIS, KID, and NRD beginning with 2001 data and the SEDD beginning with 2017 data. The CCR Files are part of a family of databases and software tools developed as part of the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project (HCUP), a Federal-State-Industry partnership sponsored by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality. HCUP databases, tools, and software inform decision making at the national, State, and community levels.
