Table of Contents

Finally. After months and months of speculation, delays, and mounting uncertainty, the industry finally received word from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) regarding the final rule to the Sunshine Act. Officially called the “National Physician Payment Transparency Program: Open Payments.” The rule will require drug and device manufacturers that receive government reimbursements to collect data on gifts and payments to teaching hospitals and physicians, starting on August 1st, 2013.
