New login requirements for Medicare — Action Required

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) will be implementing a system security change that affects the Novitasphere log in requirements for maintaining access.

Effective September 1, 2018, registered Novitasphere users must log into Novitasphere at least once every 30 days to be considered active. This is a change from the current 60 day login requirement.

Any user IDs that do not take this step will be considered inactive and the Novitasphere role will be removed. After a role is removed, you will be required to re-request the Novitasphere role in EIDM to re-gain access to Novitasphere.

To prepare for this change, all users should ensure that they are meeting the requirement prior to September 1, 2018.
