The nomination period is open, and stakeholders are invited to submit nominations until July 1 at 10:59 p.m. CT.
Acumen will convene the following Clinician Expert Workgroups, based on episode groups selected by CMS and informed by stakeholder input received through the public comment period, in July 2022:

According to CMS, clinicians interested in joining a workgroup for the first time may submit their nomination. Wave 4 workgroup members can express their interest in an abbreviated form shared via email.
