M2MCommunity.pngQ:What are the advantages and/or disadvantages to reporting under MIPS as a group? We are a small practice with 3 doctors and 1 nurse practitioner, all using EHR.

A: You can choose to report as a group or as individual physicians regardless of your Tax ID. It may be more beneficial for you to report as a group if all your physicians are using the EHR. Also, only one physician in the group has to complete the practice improvement activity requirements and the full group would receive credit. PAs don't have to perform the advancing care information category, so they would only have to perform the quality score.
