What are MIPS Virtual Groups?

Signing up for Virtual Groups

The window for signing up for Virtual Groups begins at the beginning of October and runs through December 31 each year. You must submit your election to CMS via e-mail before the end of the year. (MIPS_VirtualGroups@cms.hhs.gov)

Join a Virtual Group just for my NPI

Virtual Groups are submitted by TIN. All NPIs associated with that TIN must be a part of the MIPS Virtual Group.

Why join a Virtual Group

A MIPS Virtual Group can help you improve your scores. Virtual groups will allow you to submit MIPS even if you are not required to. Joining a virtual group will give you more patients to submit, as the entire group submits as one entity. All TINs in the Virtual Group will get the same score. This is a great way to start submitting and getting rewarded for your MIPS scores.
