Open Payments is a national disclosure program that promotes a more transparent and accountable health care system
by making the financial relationships between applicable manufacturers and group purchasing organizations (GPOs) and
health care providers (physicians and teaching hospitals) available to the public.
Pre-publication review and dispute for program year 2018 Open Payments data is available through May 15. CMS will
publish program year 2018 data and updates to the previous program years’ data in June 2019. Physician and teaching
hospital review of the data is voluntary, but strongly encouraged.
