UPDATE: The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced Thursday, August 29 that the website again will be down for periods of time Aug. 30 and Sept. 5. As a result of the outages, the deadline for physicians to review and dispute their data has been extended by three days until 11:59 PM (Eastern) Sept. 11.

Doctors now have until September 10 to review and dispute reports about their financial interactions with manufacturers of drugs and medical devices under the Physician Payments Sunshine Act (also known as the Open Payments program). Here’s how to make sure the information reported about you is accurate before the data is released to the public Sept. 30.
