Logging into the CMS Payroll-Based Journal is a multi-step process:

  • 1. Go to the QTSO submission access page: https://www.qtso.com/submissions/submissions.html. Click on your state and follow the prompts.
  • 2. Enter your CMS Secure Access Service account username and password. This will connect you to the CMS network allowing you access to their private websites (including PBJ).
  • 3. The QIES System webpage will be displayed. Click on the PBJ Submissions link.
  • 4. Enter your PBJ user id and password. This is a different account then you used for CMS Secure Access Service.
