Physician Payment Sunshine Act

Physician Payment Sunshine Act frequently asked questions

Can I dispute a report about me?

Yes, physicians can dispute reports from manufacturers and GPOs.

Any covered recipient, physician owner or investor may initiate disputes at any time after the 45 day review and correction period begins, but before the end of the calendar year. Note that any changes resulting from disputes initiated after the 45 day review period may not be made until the next time the data is refreshed. If a dispute is not resolved by 15 days after the end of the 45 day period, we will report the applicable manufacturer or applicable GPO’s version of the payment or other transfer of value (or ownership or investment interest), but will mark it as disputed.
