Review Previously Published Data

You can view your past 2013-2015 Open Payments Data at https://openpaymentsdata.cms.gov. Find your 2013-215 data by entering your First Name and Last Name in the search boxes and clicking "Search."  This data is publicly available and does not require an account to access.  

Review and dispute 2016 Data for New Users
If you have never registered with open payments before, make sure you have your National Provider Identifier (NPI) number, and State License Number (SLN). Initial registration is a two-step process and should take approximately 30 minutes:
1.            Register in the CMS Enterprise Identity Management System (EIDM);
2.            Register in the Open Payments system  

For Users That Registered Last Year and Have Used Their Accounts in the Last 60 Days:

If you registered last year, you do NOT need to reregister in the EIDM or the Open Payments system. If the account has been accessed within the last 60 days, go to the CMS Enterprise Portal, log in using your user ID and password, and navigate to the Open Payments system home page.

For Users That Registered Last Year but Have Been Inactive for More than 60 Days:

The EIDM locks accounts if there is no activity for 60 days or more. To unlock an account, go to the CMS Enterprise Portal, enter your user ID and correctly answer all challenge questions; you'll then be prompted to enter a new password.

For Users That Registered Last Year but Have Been Inactive for More than 180 Days:

The EIDM deactivates accounts if there is no activity for 180 days or more. To reinstate an account that has been deactivated, contact the Open Payments Help Desk. For more information about the registration process, visit the physician and teaching hospital registration page on the Open Payments website.
