Important Advance Beneficiary Notice (ABN) CMS-R-131 News

The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) periodically reviews the ABN (Form CMS-R-131) and in March 2017 approved it for renewal. There are no changes to the form itself, but the expiration date has been changed to 03/2020. To deliver a valid ABN, a provider must use the most recent version of the CMS-R-131. Providers are encouraged to incorporate the new form into their practice as soon as possible. More information on the CMS-R-131 is located on the CMS website.


Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) - Training and Resources

To comply with CMS requirements, the transactional side of the WPS GHA Portal will soon require multi-factor authentication (MFA) by providers. As of March 31, 2017, providers can voluntarily "opt-in" to use MFA before it becomes mandatory later in 2017. In February, WPS GHA Provider Outreach and Education conducted a series of teleconferences to introduce this new process and to encourage providers to "opt-in" prior to MFA becoming mandatory. An audio/visual presentation along with Questions and Answers from the MFA teleconferences can be accessed by logging into the WPS GHA Learning Centerand looking for "Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)" under On-Demand Courses.
