Under the “Sunshine Act” provisions of the Affordable Care Act, certain manufacturers of drugs, devices, biologicals, and medical supplies covered by Medicare, Medicaid and CHIP must report annually to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) certain payments or transfers of value they have made to physicians and teaching hospitals. CMS has announced that Sunshine Act reporting thresholds are being adjusted slightly for 2014 to reflect changes in the consumer price index. Specifically, a payment or other transfer of value is excluded from reporting requirements for 2014 if it is less than $10.18 (compared to $10.00 for 2013), unless the aggregate amount transferred to, requested by, or designated on behalf of a covered recipient exceeds $101.75 in a calendar year (up slightly from $100.00 for 2013).
