CMS updates Open Payments data

January 30, 2017 Baltimore — The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has updated the Open Payments system to reflect changes since the data was last published on June 30, 2016. The updated dataset is now available for viewing at

Every year, CMS updates the Open Payments (Physician Payments Sunshine Act) data. CMS recommends all providers check their data since companies can submit older data from previous years.

The updated Open Payments data may reflect:

  • Changes made to records.
  • Changes to delays in publication flags.
  • Changes to disputed records.
  • Records that were deleted.
  • Financial data submitted by applicable manufacturers and group purchasing organizations.
For more information about reviewing and disputing public Open Payments data, visit the website or contact the CMS Help Desk at, 1-855-326-8366.

Beginning Feb. 1, live support will be also available from 7:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. EST Monday to Friday at 1-855-326-8366.
