Answer:
ASK AN EXPERT

Each activity is weighted either medium or high. To achieve the maximum 40 points for the Improvement Activity score, pick 1 of these combinations:

• 1 high-weighted activity (any subcategory)
• 2 medium-weighted activities (any subcategory)

Each medium-weighted activity is worth 20 points of the total Improvement Activity performance category score. A high-weighted activity is worth 40 points of the total category score. You can pick 2 medium-weighted activities or 1 high-weighted activity to earn a total of 40 points of the total category score.

When reporting as a group or Virtual group, your small practice, non-patient facing, rural or HPSA designations must be at the group or virtual group level to qualify for these reduced reporting requirements listed above. Specifically, non-patient facing, rural or HPSA designations must have more than 75% of the NPIs billing under the group's TIN or virtual group's TINs during the applicable determination period.
