A Closer Look at the Cost Performance Category

Speaking Out on The Quality Payment Program’s fourth episode explores the cost category as a part of the Merit-based Incentive Payment System otherwise known as (MIPS). The Cost category is an important part of the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) because it measures resources clinicians use to care for patients and Medicare payments made for care (items and services) provided to beneficiaries. Our Host, Temaka Wiliams and featured guest, MGMA Consultant Pamela Ballou-Nelson, RN, MSPH, CMPE, PhD discuss what should be reported and how measures are scored.

Be sure to join us in the future as we continue to speak out on the complex inner workings of the Quality Payment Program and provide guidance on how to navigate it efficiently. New Episodes are available on the second Wednesday of each month. For more information about the Quality Payment Program, you can visit Telligen’s Quality Payment Program (QPP) Page & Resources.
