1. Can different physicians in the same group (TIN) do different improvement activities?

  1. Yes, physicians can participate individually or as a group and can complete any combination of high weight activities (worth 20 points each) and medium weight activities (worth 10 points each) during a 90-day reporting period equaling at least 40 total points, including the following combinations:
     
    1. 2 high-weight activities (2 x 20 = 40 points);
    2. 4 medium-weight activities (4 x 10 = 40 points);
    3. 2 medium-weight activities AND 1 high-weight activity ((2 x 10) + (1 x 20) = 40 points)

    The number of points associated with high and medium weight activities is increased for solo practitioners, groups of 15 or fewer, rural area, health professional shortage area (HPSA), and non-patient facing practice physicians. These physicians can also complete any combination of high weight activities (worth 40 points each) and medium weight activities (worth 20 points each) during a 90-day reporting period equaling at least 40 total points, including the following combinations:
     
    1. 2 medium-weight activities (2 x 20 = 40 points)
