CMS has contracted with Acumen, LLC to develop episode-based cost measures for potential use in the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS). One measure currently under development is related to Non-Pressure Ulcers.

CMS will be conducting field testing for the Non-Pressure Ulcers episode-based cost measure February 1–29 and your input is needed. Starting February 1, if you receive a Field Test Report in your Quality Payment Program account, please share your feedback with CMS through the Field Testing Feedback Survey. If you have questions or wish to share feedback with APMA, please email mips@apma.org
