CMS Hosts Measure-Specific Workgroup Webinars for Cost Measure Development

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), alongside contractor Acumen, LLC, will host several measure-specific workgroup webinars as part of Wave 3 of cost measure development. The listen-only webinars are open to the public to observe the considerations and discussions around developing cost measures.

The different measure-specific workgroups will hold follow-up discussions from the in-person meetings, as well as make other refinements to the cost measures prior to national field testing scheduled for April 2020.
