CMS Open Door Forum on Open Payments Expansion under the SUPPORT Act

Posted on Monday, August 26, 2019 12:58 PM

The CMS Open Payments team will host a Special Open Door Forum on the Substance Use Disorder Prevention that Promotes Opioid Recovery and Treatment for Patients and Communities Act (SUPPORT Act) impact on the Open Payments program.  Open Payments is a national disclosure program that promotes a more transparent and accountable health care system by publishing the financial relationships between applicable manufactures and group purchasing organizations (GPOs) and health care providers (physicians and teaching hospitals). In the fall of 2018 President Trump signed the SUPPORT Act into law which expands the Open Payments definition of a covered recipient to include physician assistants, nurse practitioners, clinical nurse specialists, certified registered nurse anesthetists and certified nurse midwives. The provisions in the SUPPORT Act that impact Open Payments are a rider on the 2020 Physician Fee Schedule. CMS is formally soliciting feedback via comments on the Physician Fee Schedule, which is available through September 27, 2019 This call is intended for the providers impacted by the expanded definition and will provide an opportunity to learn about Open Payments, how the expansion directly affects them, and their role within the Open Payments program.  Further information about the Open Payments program and the proposed changes are available on the CMS Open Payments website.  We look forward to your participation.
