1. What is virtual group reporting? Virtual Group reporting was established in 2018 as a MIPS participation option. Virtual groups are defined as a combination of 2 or more TINs assigned to 1 or more solo practitioners or 1 or more groups consisting of 10 or fewer ECs. Physicians and other ECs can elect to form a Virtual Group regardless of their geographic location or specialty, and there are no limits on the number of solo practitioners and groups that can come together to form a Virtual Group. However, you can only participate in 1 Virtual Group per performance year. Unlike the group participation option which is limited to physicians under the same TIN/practice, Virtual Groups participation option allows multiple solo practitioners and small practices to come together “virtually” with each other to participate and have their performance assessed collectively as a group in all four MIPS categories.
