General Question for the Week of August 19, 2019


I have heard that the Open Payments program provides information about financial relationships regarding physicians and teaching hospitals. Does it tell the public which could be conflicts of interest?


According to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), “Open Payments does not identify which financial relationships are beneficial or which may cause conflicts of interest.”
