Prepare for 2018 MIPS Data Submission by Obtaining Your Enterprise Identification Management Credentials

CMS is encouraging all Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) participants to prepare for 2018 MIPS data submission by obtaining your Enterprise Identification Management (EIDM) user ID and password. The 2018 MIPS performance period, which impacts 2020 payment, ends on December 31, 2018. All 2018 data must be submitted to CMS by March 31, 2019.

You will need your EIDM credentials to access the Quality Payment Program Portal and submit your 2018 performance data.

How to Obtain an EIDM Account

If you do not have an EIDM account, navigate to the CMS Enterprise Portal and select "New User Registration" to create one. The following information is required for registration:

  • Application name

  • Organization legal business name, address, and phone number
  • Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) and corresponding individual Provider Transaction Access Number (PTAN)

Once you complete your EIDM account registration, you will receive an email acknowledging your successful account creation with your EIDM user ID. Use your unique EIDM user ID and password to login to the QPP Portal.
