7. How do I form a Virtual Group? Virtual Group election must be made prior to the beginning of the performance period; therefore, physicians and other clinicians must have elected to form a Virtual Group by the December 31, 2020 deadline for 2021 MIPS participation. Therefore, Virtual Groups can no longer be formed for the 2021 MIPS performance year. However, you or your group may consider forming or joining a Virtual Group for the 2022 MIPS performance year. To form a Virtual Group, you must go through a 2-step election process. Once you complete the election process for a given performance year, you will be committed to reporting at the Virtual Group level for that year.
