MFA device secondary registration FAQ

Q. If I am already getting a request to enter a multifactor authentication (MFA) passcode, do I need to register another device to access SPOT?
A. If you use other applications such as Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) or Provider Statistical and Reimbursement (PS&R) that are hosted on the Identity Management system (IDM), then you have already completed registration of a MFA device with your IDM account. You are ready to use MFA to access SPOT. CMS uses MFA to verify account holder identity for many of the other applications hosted on its IDM system.
However, if this is the first time you are seeing the field to enter the MFA passcode and you wish to register your first MFA device, enter only the password you use to access SPOT at this time. First Coast offers this step-by-step guide to help you register your first MFA device.
