New Law Requires Notice to Patients About Open Payments Database

According to Assembly Bill 1278, California physicians must provide patients with a written or electronic notice regarding the federal Open Payments database during their initial office visit. Physicians must also post a statement in their offices and on their websites, informing visitors about the Open Payments database.

In compliance with AB 1278, Grover Aesthetics is providing the following information.

The Open Payments Database is a federal tool used to search payments made by drug and device companies to physicians and teaching hospitals. It can be found here, and for more information, visit cms.gov/openpayments. Data displayed on the Open Payments Search Tool is from January 2015 through December 2021.

Effective January 1, 2023, drug and medical device manufacturers must report their financial interactions with physicians, including:

  • Consulting fees
  • Travel reimbursements
  • Research grants
  • Other gifts

Any payments, ownership interests, and other “transfers of value” are reported to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for publication in the public Open Payments database.

You can use the Open Payments database to search payments made by drug and medical device companies to:

  • Physicians
  • Physician assistants
  • Advanced practice nurses
  • Teaching hospitals
