Before publicly posting information, CMS will give physicians 45 days to review submitted data and initiate disputes. CMS will host pre-publication data on a secure online portal.

You can also contact the Open Payments help desk at email@example.com or 855.326.8366. The help desk is open Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. CT, excluding federal holidays.
- Physicians and hospitals have 45 days to initiate disputes over the data reported. View the CMS dispute-process overview.
- If the dispute is not resolved during this 45-day period, physicians will have an additional 15 days to reach a resolution.
- If the dispute continues, the data will still be posted to the public Web page but flagged as “Disputed.”
- Physicians will be able to seek correction or contest reports for two years after they first get access to reports with disputed information.
