Changes for Reporting Entities
If you are a reporting entity, you will need to collect and submit data related to payments or transfers of value between you and these five new provider types as well as physicians and teaching hospitals.
Reporting entities will be required to submit this data to CMS beginning in 2022, which means data collection on these interactions began on January 1, 2021.
The data collected in 2021 will be reported and published in 2022.
