Quality Payment Program cost measure information

Quality Payment Program cost measure information

The MACRA required us to collaborate with clinicians and other interested parties to develop measures for potential implementation in the cost performance category of the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS), one of the tracks of the Quality Payment Program (QPP). CMS works with contractors to develop the methods for analyzing costs in cost measures and to seek input during the cost measure development process. 

Use the “Cost measures” links in the sidebar navigation pane above to access pages with information about cost measure development and resources from recent public feedback, public comment, and expert input opportunities.
