EIDM: Account sharing forbidden FAQ

Q: Can multiple users from the same organization use one EIDM account? If an employee leaves the organization, can another employee use the EIDM account?
A: No -- EIDM accounts may not be shared -- even among members of the same organization. Each Enterprise Identity Management (EIDM) account has a unique User ID and Password, and each User ID is associated with a specific individual’s Social Security Number (SSN) and personal information (e.g., home address, telephone number, challenge questions/answers).
Note: Only the last five digits of the individual’s SSN will be visible to EIDM and SPOT support staff.

Each individual requiring access must register separately

If multiple individuals from the same organization require access to SPOT, each must create their own EIDM account and request access to the SPOT. View the full registration instructions here: https://medicare.fcso.com/faqs/answers/241528.asp.

Penalties for EIDM account sharing

If an EIDM account holder shares his or her account with anyone -- including someone from the same organization -- the security violation will be reported to Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), and the EIDM account will be temporarily disabled or permanently archived.
Note: Although users may share their EIDM User ID with the SPOT Help Desk, passwords should never be shared.

Terminated employees: Remove access to ‘SPOT’ required

If an EIDM account holder employed by your organization resigns or is terminated, his or her EIDM account may remain intact; however, the access to SPOT should be removed by either the account holder or the SPOT Help Desk (FCSOSpotHelp@FCSO.com).
