The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has issued guidance related to Open Payment reporting. The agency has indicated they do not have the authority to extend the deadline for reporting entities past the current March 30th deadline but can provide some flexibility. CMS stated they are sensitive to the impact of the current public health emergency related to COVID-19 and will exercise discretion as to the completeness and timeliness of submissions.
Additional information can be found on the CMS Open Payment webpage.
