CMS is inviting comments on the Physician Payment Sunshine Act “Open Payments Program” dispute resolution and corrections process. As previously reported, the Physician Payment Sunshine Act requires pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers and group purchasing organizations (GPOs) to register with and submit to CMS data on their financial relationships with physicians and teaching hospitals. This financial data will be made publicly available on the CMS Open Payments website. On May 5, 2014, CMS published a notice soliciting additional feedback on the dispute resolution and corrections process, under which covered recipients and physician owners or investors have an opportunity to dispute certain information regarding a payment or other transfer of value. Comments will be accepted until June 2, 2014.
