User ID Process

Obtaining HPMS Access

All users that require access to HPMS must request a CMS user ID. At this time, there are two processes for making this request:

  • You can submit the paper-based EUA user access form. The form and form instructions are available in the Downloads section below. Please note that you must submit an original, signed form (no copies). The form must be completed in its entirety, or it will be destroyed. These requests require on average two weeks, so please plan accordingly when making your request.

  • You can also now use the EFI system to request a CMS user ID. The HPMS EFI instructions are also available in the Downloads section below. Please ensure that you follow the EFI instructions carefully to avoid errors that will delay the processing of your submission. These requests require on average one week to complete.

Questions regarding the user ID process should be directed to HPMS_access@cms.hhs.gov.

Consultant and Signatory HPMS Access

All users that require HPMS access as a consultant (i.e., users that are not a direct employee of the organization) or require electronic signature access must follow the instructions identified in the below memos.  Failure to follow these instructions may jeopardize your HPMS access. Any questions regarding this process should be directed to HPMSConsultantAccess@cms.hhs.gov.
