Open Payments: Data review and dispute underway for physicians - log in before May 20

Friday, May 15, 2015 01:23 PM

Physicians have until May 20 to review and dispute reports regarding their financial interactions with manufacturers of drugs and medical devices reported under the Physician Payments Sunshine Act (also known as the Open Payments program). Physicians should follow three steps to register and review their data.

  1. Step 1: Register with the federal CMS’s Enterprise Portal (https://portal.cms.gov). New users will be prompted to register with the portal before proceeding.
  2. Step 2: Register with the federal CMS’s Open Payments system via the Enterprise Portal.
  3. Step 3: Review your data and dispute any inaccurate data. Disputes initiated by May 20 will be flagged as such when the data set is made public on June 30. Physicians can still review and dispute data after May 20, but the data will not be flagged.
  4. Send an email to OpenPayments@ama-assn.org detailing your experience registering with the system and reviewing your data. Responses will be used in the AMA’s ongoing advocacy efforts.
