Registration for Hospice User IDs Now Available
Medicare-certified hospices will be required to complete and submit a Hospice Item Set (HIS) Admission record and a Hospice Item Set (HIS) Discharge record for each patient admission on or after July 1, 2014. The completed HIS records are submitted to the Quality Improvement and Evaluation System (QIES) Assessment Submission and Processing (ASAP) system.
Hospice providers required to submit the HIS records must register for two separate user IDs: a CMSNet User ID and a QIES User ID. The online registration applications for the CMSNet User ID and the QIES User ID are now available.
CMSNet User ID
Each provider is allowed two CMSNet User IDs which allows access to CMS’ private network where the QIES systems reside.
The CMSNet User ID registration is an online, self-registration process.
