Physicians: Review Your Data Before it Becomes Available to the Public
Review and dispute for the June 30, 2016, Open Payments data publication opened on Friday, April 1, 2016, and will last for 45 days. CMS will publish the 2015 payment data and updates to the 2013 and 2014 data on June 30, 2016. In order for any disputes to be addressed before the June 30 publication, physicians and teaching hospitals must initiate their disputes during the 45-day review period, and industry must resolve the dispute before the publication deadline. Review and dispute is voluntary but strongly encouraged. The opportunity for physicians and teaching hospitals to review and dispute the data submitted about them expires at the end of the year that the record is first published.
If You Have Never Registered with Open Payments Before
Make sure you have your National Provider Identifier (NPI) number, Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) number, and State license number (SLN). Initial registration is a two-step process and should only take 30 minutes:
- Register in the CMS Enterprise Identity Management System (EIDM)
- Register in the Open Payments system
For Users That Registered Last Year and Have Used Their Accounts in the Last 60 Days
Physicians and teaching hospitals who registered last year do not need to reregister in the EIDM or the Open Payments system. If the account has been accessed within the last 60 days, go to the CMS Enterprise Portal, log in using your user ID and password, and navigate to the Open Payments system home page.
For Users That Registered Last Year but Have Been Inactive for More than 60 Days
The EIDM locks accounts if there is no activity for 60 days or more. To unlock an account, go to the CMS Enterprise Portal, enter your user ID and correctly answer all challenge questions; you’ll then be prompted to enter a new password.
For Users That Registered Last Year but Have Been Inactive for More than 180 Days
The EIDM deactivates accounts if there is no activity for 180 days or more. To reinstate an account that has been deactivated, contact the Open Payments Help Desk.
