Please Note: Before any enrollment action can be taken by an individual using Internet-based PECOS on behalf of a provider or supplier organization, a number of processes must be completed. These processes will register and authenticate the Authorized Official (AO) of the provider or supplier organization and the individual(s) who will be using Internet-based PECOS on behalf of the provider or supplier organization. In addition, these processes will establish the relationship between the provider or supplier organization and the organization whose employee(s) will use Internet-based PECOS on behalf of the provider or supplier organization. These processes begin with the AO of the provider or supplier organization, and they may take several weeks to be completed. For complete instructions, please visit:
