Open payments: Do you know what they report about you?

Posted By Chet Seward, Wednesday, May 24, 2017

Each spring, physicians have the opportunity to review the payments drug or device companies say they made to you in the prior year. If you think the data is incorrect, you can dispute it. 

The drug or medical device company that reported the payment then has 15 additional days after the 45-day review and dispute period to change, correct or validate the data. The data goes public on June 30. 

Check your data regularly. Data can be submitted from previous years. A drug or device company could be new to Open Payments and drug or device companies can always correct or remove records. Check your data annually, even if you are certain you did not receive payments the previous year—past years’ data could have been submitted. If you missed your chance to review the data before publication on June 30, you can still dispute records in the Open Payments system until December 31. Afterwards, the system will not allow you to dispute data.
