CMS Registration and Attestation Helpdesk

Successfully attesting in the Vermont Medicaid MAPIR system depends on ensuring the information at the CMS Registration and Attestation site is correctly aligned with the provider’s information in the Medicaid system.

If you have new providers at your organization, or if the preparer role at your practice has transitioned to a new staff member, you will need to update that information with CMS systems in order to proceed with attesting on behalf of providers. CMS has updated its support for these issues, and has included the information in their updated Frequently Asked Questions.

  • What should I do if I am unable to login to the Registration System, or have forgotten my password?
  • A surrogate user (agent/office manager) is unable to select a provider for update in the Registration System, in spite of having an association with the provider in the I&A system.
  • How can I get guidance or assistance relating to the Registration System?

Review the FAQs to understand the steps to take to align provider and preparer information for PIP/EHRIP attestations, and contact CMS for assistance:
