Overview Join the Open Payments team from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ Center for Program Integrity for this overview of the Open Payments program. The Open Payments program is a national disclosure program that promotes a more transparent and accountable health care system.
Open Payments houses a publicly accessible database of payments that reporting entities, including drug and medical device companies, make to covered recipients like physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and other health care providers.
In this session, you will learn about the program including how it operates, see highlights of the data, and become familiar with your role as a covered recipient. Following the presentation, the Team will field questions from the participants.
Describe the Open Payments program and the cycle of each program year.
State the steps for getting involved in Open Payments.
Discuss the publicly accessible data in Open Payments and its impact on health care providers such as yourself.
