The Cost Category of the QPP is often cited as the most complex and difficult to grasp of the four categories. In Year 3 of the Qualify Payment Program, CMS made several changes to the cost category, and it is set to make up 15% of an Eligible Clinician’s or an Eligible Group’s MIPS final score. It will increase in weight for the MIPS program over time. Cost is calculated from Medicare Claims data during the performance year. The difficulty of analyzing actual attributions of Cost makes this category very challenging. It is essential to understand the influence of Cost on your final MIPS score.

We’ll go over the category in depth, highlighting the new changes and how they might affect you and your practice. Our goal is to alleviate some of the uncertainty and concern around this category. We’ll outline what you can do to positively impact your performance in the Quality Payment Program for 2019.
