BEFORE YOU DOWNLOAD
Some datasets, particularly the general payments dataset, are extremely large and may be difficult to download and/or cause computer performance issues. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) recommends using WinZip, WinRAR, or 7-Zip for file decompression.
Every year, CMS publishes complete datasets that consolidate the information submitted by reporting entities for active years of Open Payments data. You can download the full datasets below or use the Open Payments Search Tool to refine and filter views of this data. Datasets from previous program years are available on the Archived Datasets page.
