Wave 6 cost measures field testing

From February 1 to March 14, 2024, we field tested 2 newly developed Wave 6 episode-based cost measures for consideration in MIPS. During field testing, eligible clinicians and clinician groups were able to download their Field Test Reports from the Quality Payment Program website and give feedback on the draft measure specifications. These reports were for field testing only, and don’t affect any scoring or payment adjustments.
