Public Listening Opportunity: Wave 5 Workgroup Service Assignment and Refinement Webinars

Thursday, September 22, 2022

CMS has contracted with Acumen, LLC to develop episode-based cost measures for their potential use in the cost performance category of the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS). As part of Wave 5 of measure development, Acumen convenes Clinician Expert Workgroups (“workgroups”) to provide input on all components of cost measure specifications.

Acumen is hosting part-day virtual Service Assignment and Refinement (SAR) Webinars on September 29 to October 4, 2022, that will be open to the public with a listen-only option. Interested parties and members of the public are invited to listen in on the considerations that inform cost measure development. Please feel free to share this message with anyone you believe may be interested.

The dates and times for the workgroup webinars are listed below. To register (required), please click on the webinar(s) you’re interested in attending:
