December 22, 2014
Ruselle W. Robinson

Just in time for the next Sunshine Act reporting cycle, CMS has updated the Open Payments User Guide.  The User Guide is a comprehensive Sunshine Act resource for applicable manufacturers, applicable group purchasing organizations (GPOs), physicians and teaching hospitals.  The updated User Guide, Version 3.2 dated December 2014, includes new information in Chapter 5:  Review and Dispute for Industry.

Here is a link to the revised User Guide:  http://www.cms.gov/OpenPayments/Downloads/Open-Payments-User-Guide.pdf

Reminder:  The Sunshine Act reporting period for submission of 2014 data by applicable manufacturers and applicable GPOs will begin February 1, 2015 and continue through March 31, 2015.

I will continue to monitor Sunshine Act developments and report to you as they occur.
