How to avoid rejection of required SPOT transfer form
Of the required SPOT transfer forms First Coast Service Options (First Coast) has received so far, 46 percent have been rejected for one or more reasons. It is crucial that information on the transfer form is correct for submission or users will lose their SPOT access. If your form has been rejected, you will receive communication and must submit a corrected transfer form before the January 31, 2018, deadline. The reasons forms are being rejected are:
1. Information on the transfer form does not match information shown on the CMS-855 enrollment form that was submitted when the entity enrolled in the Medicare program in order to be approved, including the legal business name of the entity and the billing/group PTAN/NPI/TIN.
2. The individual signing the form is not an authorized or delegated official on the CMS-855 enrollment form.
3. The PTAN and NPI do not match the billing provider. (Do not use the PTAN/NPI of the performing provider.)
Information on the transfer form must match the information found on the CMS-855. The CMS-855 can be located by logging into internet-based Provider Enrollment, Chain, and Ownership System (PECOS) . In addition, you can log into your SPOT account to confirm your account information:

The submission of the required form is in preparation for a major change for users of the SPOT portal. Each provider entity that has one or more users with an active SPOT account must submit a transfer form designating the primary office approver and the backup office approver no later than January 31, 2018.
This significant change in how user access to SPOT will be managed going forward is the key component associated with the launch of First Coast’s new provider identity management (PIDM) platform. PIDM is replacing the current EIDM model that SPOT users access for registration and authentication/modification of their accounts.
Once a transfer form has been received and validated by First Coast, the contact person listed on the form will receive confirmation within 15 days of submission whether the application was approved or rejected. Once approvers are registered, all other existing SPOT accounts associated with the same combination of billing information will be assigned to the approver for review.
