The Centers For Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) posted the Measures Under Consideration (MUC) list for 2018 pre-rulemaking. Please see the announcement on the CMS blog here. Below is a short summary from Modern Healthcare:
Modern Healthcare reports that CMS released a list of 32 measures Thursday that are “under consideration for Medicare’s quality reporting and value-based purchasing programs.” Last year, CMS considered almost 100 measures. The smaller number of measures is “in line with CMS Administrator Seema Verma’s focus on reducing regulatory burden for providers” and the agency’s Meaningful Measures initiative. The list was culled from a pool of 184 submitted by stakeholders.
