In 2020, the CMS has included 20 measures for cost category performance:
- Medicare Spending per Beneficiary (MSPB)
- Total per Capita Cost measure for all attributed beneficiaries (TPCC)
- And 18 episode based measures.
CMS will calculate Cost category score based on MIPS eligible clinicians’ performance compared to the measure benchmark. Individual MIPS eligible clinicians and groups don’t have to submit any other information for the Cost performance category.
