5. What are some benefits to joining or forming a Virtual Group?

  1. According to CMS, some solo physicians and small groups may not have enough patient cases per measure to be reliably measured against a benchmark on their own or have the resources to successfully participate in MIPS on their own. This can be a disadvantage for solo physicians and small groups and affect their scoring results. However, in a Virtual Group, solo physicians and small groups who ban together could increase their patient volume to be reliably measured, share resources and best practices, and optimize participation to increase their MIPS performance scores and related payment adjustments.
