Open Payments is the federally run program that collects the information about these financial relationships that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services makes available to you.

Sometimes, doctors and hospitals have financial relationships with health care manufacturing companies. These relationships can include money for research activities, gifts, speaking fees, meals, or travel. The Social Security Act requires CMS – the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services – to collect information from applicable manufacturers and group purchasing organizations (GPOs) in order to report information about their financial relationships with physicians and hospitals. Open Payments is the federally run program that collects the information about these financial relationships and makes it available to you.
