Doc groups ask Medicare to keep pay data under wraps a little longer

August 7, 2014 by Arezu Sarvestani

A coalition of more than 100 medical societies urges the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services to sit on physician payment data for an extra 6 months.

A massive alliance of medical societies urged Medicare regulators this week to keep physician pay data from the public for an extra 6 months, time that doctors peruse their profiles for inaccuracies about their financial relationships with medical device and drug companies.

The proposal would keep physician financial data under wraps until March 31, 2015, rather than Sept. 30, 2014, as planned.
