Sunshine Act Update: Open Payments Registration and Review/Dispute Process Began July 14

Registering in the Open Payments system is voluntary, however, it is a mandatory process if physicians want to review and dispute the data submitted by manufacturers and group purchasing organizations (the Industry) before the data is posted to the public on September 30, 2014. Any data disputes must be filed on or before August 27, 2014, in order to be reviewed and possibly corrected by the Industry which before going public, will be able to submit dispute corrections beginning August 28 through September 11. Please Note: Registration is a two-step process. Physicians must first register for the Enterprise Portal before registering for the Open Payments System. View MSNJ’s archived webinar regarding the complicated Enterprise Portal registration process. Read more on how to prepare for the review and dispute process. View AMA’s Sunshine Act resources.
