On September 12, 2012 the Senate Aging Committee will hold a roundtable forum entitled “Let the Sunshine in: Implementing the Physician Payments Sunshine Act.”   The ACA’s Physician Payment Sunshine Act requires applicable manufacturers of drugs, devices, biologicals, or medical supplies covered under Medicare, Medicaid, or CHIP to report annually to the HHS Secretary certain payments or other transfers of value to physicians and teaching hospitals. Additionally, applicable manufacturers and applicable group purchasing organizations must report certain information regarding the ownership or investment interests in them that are held by physicians or their immediate family members.  For our previous reports on the Sunshine Act provisions, click here.
