CMS Extends Cost Measure Field Testing to Nov. 5

October 30, 2018


The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) is extending the timeframe for submitting feedback on the 2018 field testing of cost measures until Monday, November 5, 2018, at 12:00 pm EDT. The feedback received by the original deadline of this Wednesday, October 31, 2018, 11:59 pm EDT will be processed and reviewed first as the Clinical Subcommittees and expert stakeholder workgroups consider measure refinements this fall. These measures will be considered for use in the Cost Performance Category of the Merit-based Incentive Payment System in 2020 or beyond.

Details of the field testing were previously reported on the McDermottPlus website and are available here.

CMS is directing all queries to the Quality Payment Program Service Center via telephone at 1-866-288-8292 or via email at
