On March 29, 2012, the New Hampshire House of Representatives recommended for passage HB 1725.  If passed, HB 1725 would prohibit all health care practitioners from prescribing or referring any U.S. Food and Drug Administration class II or class III implantable medical device if the practitioner stands to profit, directly or indirectly, from the sale of the device, or from performing any procedure involving the device.  For more information, see Reed Smith’s summary on our Life Sciences Legal Update Blog.
