Sunshine Act Update: The Open Payments Review and Dispute Process Began July 14
Registering in the Open Payments system is voluntary, however, it is a mandatory process if physicians want to review and dispute the data submitted by manufacturers and group purchasing organizations (the Industry) before the data is posted to the public on September 30, 2014.
To dispute the data submitted by the Industry for the 2013 reporting period, physicians must be registered and review any data reported about them on or before August 27, 2014.
Additional time will be provided to the Industry to correct disputes beginning August 28 through September 11. Read a guidance document.
