Medicare designed the Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement (CJR) model to encourage higher quality care and greater financial accountability from hospitals when Medicare beneficiaries receive lower-extremity joint replacement procedures (LEJR), typically hip or knee replacements.

The CJR model aims to support better and more efficient care for beneficiaries undergoing LEJR procedures. A CJR episode of care is typically defined as an admission of an eligible Medicare beneficiary to a hospital participating in the CJR model for an LEJR procedure.
