On Wednesday, Feb. 13, from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. ET, CMS will host a webinar to provide an overview of the 2018 data submissions for Open Payments. There will be a question-and-answer session following the presentation. To ask a question, you must register for the webinar.
As a reminder, on Jan. 18, CMS updated the Open Payments dataset to reflect changes to the data that took place since the last publication in June 2018. Use the Open Payments Search Tool to view the data. The refreshed dataset includes:
- Record updates: Changes to non-disputed records made on or before November 15
- Disputed records: Updated information for dispute resolutions completed on or before December 31
- Record deletions: Removed records deleted before December 31
In order to review and dispute your data in the Open Payments program, you must be registered in the Open Payments system. If you registered last year, you do not need to register again. If it has been more than 180 days since you logged onto the system, your account is deactivated for security purposes. To set up a new account, visit the Registration for Physicians & Teaching Hospitals website.
If you have any questions, please reach out to Jillian Winans, regulatory affairs specialist, at email@example.com or 703-591-2220.
