AHA News writes: The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services seeks public input as it considers an appropriate policy regarding the disclosure of individual physician payment data, noting that a federal district court recently lifted a 1979 injunction that prohibited the agency from disclosing annual Medicare payments to individual physicians. “In light of this recent legal development and our ongoing commitment to greater transparency in the health care system, CMS seeks public input on the most appropriate policies with respect to disclosure of individual physician payment data,” the agency said in an Aug. 6 notice seeking comments for 30 days.
