NEW! Paperless HCS User Accounts for non medical professionals OR all those needing access to UAS. The Health Commerce System (HCS) user account request has gone paperless! No more signatures and notary. Applying for an HCS user account is as simple as filling out an online form and having a NYS DMV Driver License or NYS DMV Non-driver Photo ID. People that do not have a NYS DMV Driver License or NYS DMV Non-driver Photo ID can still apply for an HCS user account using the existing process which requires signatures and a notary. Please see your HCS Coordinator to apply.*
