In order to participate in upcoming Open Payments program activities, physicians and teaching hospitals must be registered in the Open Payments system:
- If you registered last year, you do not need to register again. If it has been over 180 days since you logged in, your account is deactivated for security purposes. Contact the Open Payments Help Desk.
The review and dispute period is targeted to begin in April 2020.
