CMS Sunshine Act Final Rule: Physician Data to be published in 2014

Posted By Administration, Friday, February 22, 2013

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) issued a final rule on the requirements for manufacturers of drugs, biological and medical devices to publically report payments and other transfers of value made to physicians and teaching hospitals.  Additionally, any ownership or investment interests physicians or their family members have in the manufacturers must be disclosed to CMS.

Data collection will begin Aug. 1, 2013 and CMS will start publishing the data by Sept. 30, 2014.  According to CMS, manufacturers, group purchasing organizations, teaching hospitals and physicians will have an opportunity to review and correct reported information before it is made public.
