Continuing Access to PS&R Depends on Annual Recertification of Your EIDM Account

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) recently released information through the Medicare Administrative Contractors (MACs) indicating that to maintain access to Provider Statistical and Reimbursement (PS&R) data, providers must annually recertify their accounts in the Enterprise Identity Management (EIDM) system. CMS began sending messages about the need to recertify in EIDM to providers’ designated Security Officials in mid-February. These notices have NOT been sent to end users. Provider Security Officials must respond timely to the recertification request or lose access to the PS&R. Please alert appropriate staff to the EIDM recertification requirement.

Following is the message being circulated by the MACs:

EIDM Annual Certification of Accounts

With the transition from IACS to EIDM for the management of PS&R user accounts complete, EIDM is preparing to re-enforce the requirement for annual certification of accounts. EIDM will be sending Security Officials regular e-mails indicating which of their users are due for certification, when that certification is due, and instructions on how to perform the certification.

CMS Enters Cycle 2 for Provider Enrollment Revalidations

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Service (CMS) has completed the first cycle of revalidation requests for all Medicare providers and supplies and are now entering a regular cycle (Cycle 2) of provider enrollment revalidations.

CMS has posted a list of all currently enrolled providers and supplies which will include the revalidation date for each provider/supplier six months prior to their due date. All others will have a date of “TBD” until they reach six months prior to the date for revalidation. Due dates are established based on the date of the last successful revalidation or initial enrollment. For a durable medical equipment supplier that is 3 years and for all other providers/supplies it is 5 years. The due date will generally be on the last day of the month.

The list identifies billing providers/suppliers only that are required to revalidate. Providers enrolled solely to order, certify, and/or prescribe via the CMS-855O application or have opted out of Medicare, will not be required to revalidate and will not be reflected on the list.
