Participation in Open Payments

Open Payments requires participation (reporting and other activities) from certain applicable manufacturers of drugs, devices, biologicals, or medical supplies covered under Title XVIII of the Social Security Act (Medicare), a State plan under Title XIX (Medicaid), or XXI of the Social Security Act (the Children's Health Insurance Program, or CHIP). Applicable GPOs are also required Open Payments participants.

Applicable manufacturers are required to report payments or transfers of values to covered recipients. Covered recipients in Open Payments include physicians and teaching hospitals. While not required to report in the program, Open Payments encourages physicians and hospitals to participate by tracking their financial relationships with applicable manufacturers and applicable GPOs and by reviewing data reported about them to ensure the accuracy of the information.
