The 2022 CAS Benchmark Survey is now open for participation!

    • Enables the point-person to plan the time needed to collect and verify data before entering it into the survey platform by July 31st
  2. Log in at and download the 2022 questions to review
  3. Review the client list in your CAS practice and determine the types of services you’re providing
  4. Determine how revenue data can be obtained for your practice
    • Costs, including labor, technology, and overhead costs billed to the CAS practice
