In order for someone other than yourself to submit data to CMS, you need to add them as a surrogate. If you received a request for access, click on the link in the e-mail or visit the Identity and Access Management System.

 

1. Login to the I&A Management System by using your username and password. This is the same username and password that you would use to access NPPES and PECOS. If you don't have a login, check with your billing staff or the provider.
