Review and dispute Open Payments data by May 15
April 26, 2019
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has set a deadline of May 15 to review and dispute Open Payments data for program year 2018. Disputes must be initiated by May 15. The data will be published in June.
According to the CMS website, Open Payments is a national disclosure program that promotes a more transparent and accountable health care system by making the financial relationships between applicable manufacturers and group purchasing organizations and health care providers available to the public. These payments include things like speaking fees, research, travel, gifts, meals and ownership interests in drug and device companies. Review of the data is strongly encouraged by the CMS.
