Open Payments Registration

Registration for physicians and teaching hospitals will be conducted in two phases for this first Open Payments reporting year:

    Phase 1:

    Phase 2:

  • Register in the Open Payments System: Register in the Open Payments system to complete the registration process and have the opportunity to review and dispute data submitted by applicable manufacturers and applicable GPOs prior to public posting of the data.  Use Quick Reference Guide for Physician Registration.

​Helpful tips from CMS:

  • Use Internet Explorer versions 8-10, Chrome or Firefox browsers. Currently the Open Payments system is not optimized for the Safari browser;
  • Consider answering "optional" questions during the registration process (skipping these questions can slow your registration).
