The Open Payments program is a national disclosure program that promotes a more transparent and accountable health care system. Open Payments houses a publicly accessible database of payments that reporting entities, including drug and medical device companies, make to covered recipients like physicians.
Please note that CMS does not comment on what relationships may be beneficial or potential conflicts of interest. CMS publishes the data attested to by reporting entities. The data is open to individual interpretation.
Explore the database at OpenPaymentsData.cms.gov.

The Open Payments Report to Congress for Fiscal Year 2022 (PDF) is now available! Read about key activities including the Program Year 2021 Data Publication which was the inaugural year of the Open Payments program expansion.
The report also includes aggregated data from the initial Program Year 2021 data publication.
Every year, Open Payments data is collected, submitted, reviewed, and published.
Reporting entities collect data about payments they’ve made to covered recipients from January 1 through December 31 each year. This includes any ownership or investment interests that physicians or physicians’ immediate family members have held with the reporting entity during that time. Learn more about the Natures of Payment that must be reported.
Reporting entities submit data collected during the previous calendar year to CMS.
Pre-publication review and dispute occurs annually from April 1 through May 15. This gives covered recipients 45 days between April 1 – May 15 to review data attributed to them before the data is published. If a covered recipient believes a record is inaccurate, they can initiate a dispute and work directly with the reporting entity to resolve the dispute before the data becomes public; CMS does not mediate disputes.
Reporting entities may resolve disputes throughout the Pre-publication review and dispute period and have an additional 15-day correction period from May 15-30 to correct any outstanding disputed records. During this time, reporting entities respond to disputes initiated during the pre-publication review and dispute period and make any necessary changes before the data is published.
Although pre-publication review and dispute is voluntary, CMS strongly encourages covered recipients to review data and ensure that it’s accurate.
CMS publishes the data annually on or by June 30. The data is available at OpenPaymentsData.cms.gov.
