Beginning April 1st, the 45-day Open Payments review and dispute period will begin. During this period of time, physicians about whom a manufacturer has reported one or more payments, will be able to register and view the reported payments in advance of the June 30 public release of the information. If any of the reported payments appear to be incorrect, physicians have until May 15th to resolve the dispute directly with the manufacturer, who can submit revised information to CMS.  You can find background information on the Sunshine Act and its requirements here or go to for the most current information, instructions, and FAQs.
