Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) coming soon on the Medicare Secondary Payer Portal (MSPRP)

CMS, Medicare Set-Aside Blog, MSP News on May 29, 2015 | Posted by Renee Martinez

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) will be implementing optional Multi-factor Authentication (MFA) services on the Medicare Secondary Payer Portal (MSPRP). This change is being made as part of the work related to implementation of the Strengthening Medicare and Repaying Taxpayers (SMART) Act.

MFA involves the use of two or more different authentication factors to verify the identity of an end user. Verified users will have access to view unmasked claim data on the Portal. Portal users may continue to use the portal without going through the MFA process but will not have the benefits of viewing unmasked data.

The MFA process is scheduled to be available beginning on July 13, 2015. Updated user guides and training material will be available on CMS.gov and within the portal upon implementation.
