At Keryx we are focused on making a difference in patients’ lives. We work with physicians and others involved in healthcare. We are fully committed to transparency; it is important to us to foster an understanding of these interactions and to prevent any real or perceived conflict of interest. As part of the federal Open Payments (Physician Payments Sunshine Act), overseen by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) any payment or transfer of value we make to a physician or teaching hospital is subject to collection and potential public reporting. These payments are separate and in addition to existing state transparency reporting requirements. We continue to be dedicated to complying with state and federal laws and regulations today and in the future.
As part of our commitment to transparency and Open Payments regulations, Keryx implemented additional a system and control process for timely, accurate and complete data collection and developed training programs to further educate employees on Open Payments requirements and policies and procedures.
Keryx is committed to reporting data to the CMS “Open Payments” that is accurate, complete and timely. We will continue to work with covered recipients on questions they have pertaining to their data.
Additional information on Open Payments is available on the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services website.
