QPP 2024 Webinar June 25: Interpreting CMS’s Cost Performance Feedback

QPP 2024 Webinar: INTERPRETING CMS’S COST PERFORMANCE FEEDBACK*
Tuesday JUNE 25, 2024 @ 12PM ET

The Cost Performance Category is one of the most challenging areas of CMS’s Quality Payment Program. Knowing where to start is half the battle, even though CMS provides beneficiary-level reports, as well as scoring details based on claims submissions from prior years.

Our Kentucky REC team of experts will discuss and break down the various types of cost measures eligible clinicians and groups may be scored on in PY24. In a program where every point matters, you will learn how to use your feedback report, and interventions your practice can implement to optimize your performance.

Whether you need a refresher, or you are taking the first steps toward better understanding this category, our June 25 webinar will give you tools to address this difficult category.
