CMS Updates Open Payment Data

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has updated the Open Payment dataset. This January update includes resolutions for disputed data and other record updates. However, CMS notes records that were submitted for the first time after March 31, 2019, are not included in this update.

The Open Payments dataset provides information about the financial relationships between drug and device manufacturers and physicians. The goal of this program is to increase transparency for patients. More information about the program and the data collected can be found on the Open Payments website.
