Review of Financial Interests Reported Under the Open Payments Program
The Physician Payments Sunshine Act (from the ACA § 6002) requires that manufacturers disclose to Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services payments made to physicians and teaching hospitals. Manufacturers and group purchasing organizations must also report ownership and investment interests held by physicians. The Open Payments Program provides public transparency about provider-industry relationships. We will determine the extent to which data in the open payments system is missing or inaccurate, the extent to which Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services oversees manufacturers and group purchasing organizations compliance with data reporting requirements, and whether the required data for physician and teaching hospital payments are valid.
