Low Back Pain Service Assignment and Refinement (SAR) Webinar
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has contracted with Acumen, LLC to develop episode-based cost measures for their potential use in the cost performance category of the Merit-based Incentive Program (MIPS). As part of Wave 4 of measure development, Acumen, LLC hosted Clinician Expert Workgroup ("workgroup") Webinars in June 2021 that were open to the public with a listen-only option. Members of the public were invited to listen in on the considerations and discussions that inform cost measure development, as they will be for this Service Assignment and Refinement (SAR) Webinar.

During this SAR Webinar, Acumen will present analyses and targeted discussion questions to facilitate discussion. Workgroup members will provide continued measure development input on service assignment and other refinements to measure specifications for the draft episode-based cost measure that will be nationally field tested. Preliminary specifications covered during the meeting should not be considered final, and meeting discussions are intermediate and subject to further changes. Note: Workgroup members will have another opportunity to recommend additional refinements to the measure specifications based on stakeholder feedback during the Post-Field Test Refinement Webinar in 2022. A summary of this SAR Webinar will be posted publicly at a later date.

Please note that a limited number of attendees can join this webinar. We suggest registrants join the webinar at the scheduled start of the meeting and try back at a later time if the attendee limit is reached. Please reach out to us via email at macra-clinical-committee-support@acumenllc.com if you have any questions or difficulties registering or accessing the webinar.
