The CMS Open Payments Program is required to collect information about payments a physician receives when a drug or device company gives a physician stocks, money for research, gifts, speaking fees, meals and other payments. Data about the payments is then shared on a public website. Before releasing this information to the public, you are given a period of time to review (and dispute if needed) any data reported about you.
The physician review and dispute for the Program Year 2016 Open Payments data publication ends on May 15; review of the data is voluntary but strongly encouraged. Disputes must be initiated during the 45-day review and dispute period in order to be reflected in the June 30, 2017 publication.
