CMS Posts Virtual Groups Toolkit for 2019 MIPS Performance Year

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) posted the 2019 Virtual Groups Toolkit for clinicians interested in virtual group participation for the 2019 Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) performance year.  The toolkit includes a fact sheet on virtual groups; details on the election process; and sample documents related to formation and selection of a virtual group.

CMS will be hosting a webinar on virtual groups on August 27 at 2 pm eastern.  Webinar registration is available here.

Virtual groups are a combination of two or more TINS assigned to one or more solo practitioners or small groups (consisting of 10 or few clinicians), or both, that elect to form a virtual group for a performance year under the Quality Payment Program (QPP).
