This article addresses the following questions:

  • What is the purpose of all this information being available?
  • You noted “Open Payments” has been there awhile. When is the next release of this information?
  • Even though the deadline has passed for Open Payments review, how do I dispute incorrect information so it can be corrected for next year’s update?
  • What information gets reported to Open Payments?
  • Is any of this information about the actual codes that I personally (or in my group) got paid for?
  • I heard that there is also a data set that I could use to compare my practice to others. What’s that?
  • What do I need to know about the Quality Payment Program (QPP) data being released this year for the first time?
