Provider Statistical and Reimbursement: Obtain Access through EIDM

Published 12/21/2020

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) established the Enterprise Identity Management (EIDM) website as a means for providers to obtain access to several CMS applications. The Provider Statistical & Reimbursement (PS&R) is one such application.

Each provider must enroll two people in EIDM. One will have the role of PS&R Security Official. This person will be requested to submit information about the provider, will set up the access for the provider and then approve other users.

The second person will have the role of PS&R User. The PS&R User can order PS&R reports.

Actions for Each Person

  1. Create an EIDM account
  2. Request access to the PS&R

The following is information on creating EIDM accounts and requesting PS&R access. If there are questions or issues, the help desk for EIDM can be reached at 866-484-8049 (press 2). The EIDM User Guide provides more information and can be obtained from the website (enter "EIDM User Guide" in the search box).
