Check your 2015 Open Payments data

April 25, 2016 Baltimore — Dentists have until May 15 to review and, if necessary, dispute reports from manufacturers and group purchasing organizations concerning 2015 payments and transfers of value before the information is posted publically June 30 on the Open Payments website. If dentists disagree with reported information, they may initiate data disputes.

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services created the website under Affordable Care Act physician payment provisions intended to encourage financial transparency in certain payments and transfers of value to physicians, including dentists, and teaching hospitals. CMS gives doctors and teaching hospitals the opportunity to register and review the information before its public disclosure. Visit ADA.org and cms.gov for further information.
