Open Payments (commonly known as the Sunshine Act) requires applicable manufacturers and group purchasing organizations (GPOs) to report certain payments and other transfers of value given to physicians and teaching hospitals, and any ownership or investment interest physicians, or their immediate family members, have in their company. This information must be reported every year. Between when the data are collected and publicly displayed, registered physicians and teaching hospitals can review and, if needed, dispute payments reported about them. Data are then displayed on the public Open Payments website.

In order to participate in upcoming Open Payments program activities, physicians and teaching hospitals must be registered in the Open Payments system.

If you registered last year, you do not need to register again. If it has been over 180 days since you logged in, you’ll need to reactivate your account by contacting the Open Payments help desk at openpayments@cms.hhs.gov or 855-326-8366 (TTY: 844-649-2766).

For more information, see the Open Payments website and resources webpage.
