Waltz Comments on Recent Changes to Open Payments System

17 February 2020 Part B News News

Partner Judy Waltz was quoted in a Part B News article, “Open Payments refresh brings in new categories, adds new provider types,” about changes in who and what gets reported to the Open Payments system.

Waltz, co-chair of the firm’s Health Care Industry team, said she thinks the changes are a recognition of the increasingly complex ways that payments can flow to covered entities. “These long-term relationships – leading to debt forgiveness or long-term loans – also have a way of increasing customer loyalty that may not be directly or exclusively related to product performance, and thereby skewing clinical decision-making,” she said.
