Physician Payment Sunshine Act/Open Payments
Open Payments is a federally run disclosure program that is intended to increase public awareness of financial relationships between the health care industry and physicians. This is accomplished by collecting data on payments and transfers of value between drug or device manufacturers and physicians or teaching hospitals and making it public information.
If you are a physician and want to review your information before it is published and dispute inaccuracies (if any), please see the instructions for system registration. If you have previously registered but have not used your account recently, you may need to consult the EIDM Account Inactivity directions.

Review and Dispute
- The review and dispute period for 2015 calendar year payments will begin on April 1, 2016. The opportunity to review and dispute is scheduled to take place within a 45 day timeframe and will close on May 15. CMS allows for an additional 15 days for industry to submit revisions. Publication of the data will occur on June 30, 2016
- Please register, review, and dispute payments as early as possible in order to allow additional time for technical issues and to allow sufficient time for disputes. You will be directed to resolve disputes directly with the manufacturer and the manufacturer will submit revisions to CMS.
- Failure to register will result in a lost opportunity to dispute and correct data that will be subject to public disclosure.
- It is also important that you update your KUMC and/or KUH COI disclosures, if needed, as it could impact research funding and research administration.
