This is a reminder that Saturday, March 31, 2018 is the final day for applicable manufacturers and group purchasing organizations (GPOs) to submit and attest to data for the June 30, 2018 publication of Program Year 2017 data.

In order for your Program Year 2017 data submission to be considered timely and be included in the June 2018 data publication, you must complete the attestation for your submitted data by 11:59 p.m. (ET) on March 31, 2017.

Reporting entities are encouraged to perform final submission and attestation of all entered records as soon as possible to avoid potential processing delays nearing the reporting deadline.

Data submission and attestation activities can be completed by logging into the Open Payments system through the EIDM Portal.

If you have reported data during previous program years but have not yet begun reporting for Program Year 2017, you will need to recertify in the Open Payments system before you can begin any 2017 submission activities.

For more information about the recertification process as well as new registrations, refer to the Applicable Manufacturer and GPO Registration and Re-Certification – Quick Reference Guide [PDF] to help you complete this necessary step.
