Public Listening Opportunity: Wave 4 Clinician Expert Workgroup Service Assignment and Refinement (SAR) Webinar

August 26 @ 1:00 pm - 4:30 pm

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 4 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 August 23 – September 1, 2021, that will be open to the public with a listen-only option. Stakeholders and members of the public are invited to listen in on the considerations that inform cost measure development. Please share this message with anyone you believe may be interested.

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