Description:

4/6/2020 Update:

  • You have a 360-day grace period to set up MFA for I&A and NPPES after your first login. By September 30, 2021, you are required to use MFA to access these systems.
  • MFA for PECOS is delayed until further notice.

During this webcast, learn about the new Multi-factor Authentication (MFA) requirement for the Identity and Access (I&A) system. Starting in September, when you login to I&A, you will enter your user ID and password, and then, use a second factor authentication to obtain a verification code:

  • The I&A system will guide existing users to set up their MFA device via a simple setup process or defer set up for a grace period
  • New users will setup up MFA when creating I&A accounts

In December, the MFA requirement will also extend to the National Plan and Provider Enumeration System (NPPES).

CMS will use webcast technology for this event with audio streamed through your computer. If you are unable to stream audio, phone lines are available.

Target Audience: Providers and I&A and NPPES users.
