The achievement thresholds and benchmarks for each quality measure in the expanded HHVBP Model are now available on the Internet Quality Improvement and Evaluation System (iQIES) portal: https://iqies.cms.gov/. The achievement thresholds and benchmarks were calculated by cohort using quality measure data for the Model baseline year, which is calendar year (CY) 2019 for the CY 2023 performance year/CY 2025 payment year.
Information on how to access the achievement thresholds and benchmarks is available on the Expanded HHVBP Model webpage, Instructions for Accessing the Achievement Thresholds and Benchmarks in iQIES.
More information about the achievement thresholds, benchmarks, and cohorts is available in the Expanded HHVBP Model Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs), also available on the Expanded HHVBP Model webpage.
