CMS Open Payments Data Review and Dispute Process Now Available

Pre-publication review and dispute for the Program Year 2022 Open Payments data is available beginning April 1, 2023 through May 15, 2023.

Open Payments is a national disclosure program that promotes a transparent and accountable health care system. Open Payments houses a publicly accessible database of payments that reporting entities, including drug and medical device companies, make to certain health care providers, which are referred to as covered recipients.

As a reminder, the definition of a covered recipient includes the following health care providers:

  • Physicians
  • Physician assistants
  • Nurse practitioners
  • Clinical nurse specialists
  • Certified registered nurse anesthetists & anesthesiologist assistants
  • Certified nurse-midwives
  • Teaching Hospitals 

From February 1, 2023 through March 31, 2023 the reporting entities submitted their 2022 data to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). CMS will publish the Open Payments Program Year 2022 data and updates to the previous program years’ data in June 2023.

Now is your opportunity to review the data before it is published. Covered recipient review of the data is voluntary, but strongly encouraged as this ensures the accuracy of the data.
