CGS Creates Multi-Factor Authentication Security Feature for their Providers

CGS Administrators, a Medicare Administrative Contractor (MAC) that provides numerous states with support services for Medicare and Medicaid programs, has created a multi-factor authentication (MFA) service for their users.

This service is being instituted due to increased Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) security requirements, and users must sign up for the new service by July 1, 2017. However, they are asking providers to start using the feature now so that it becomes part of their everyday workflow before it becomes a requirement.

The myCGS MFA is an extra layer of security in the event someone manages to obtain a user’s password without his or her knowledge.
