Open Payments Review Period for Physicians,Teaching Hospitals Ends May 20

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has issued a reminder that physicians and teaching hospitals have until May 20 to review data reported by drug and medical device makers and to dispute payments, if necessary. The data will be made public June 30. To review data, providers should register in both the CMS Enterprise Portal and the Open Payments system. The data represents the second open payments reporting cycle and covers payments made in 2014.

Physicians and teaching hospitals who registered last year do not need to register again. A Review and Dispute Process Quick Reference Guide is available to assist with reviewing submitted information and affirming or disputing the reported data before it is published. For more information about the review and dispute process, visit the resources page of the Open Payments website.
