The Summit is an expansion of ACC's "Meet the Regulator" series, which provides ACC members with the exclusive opportunity to sit down with agency personnel to discuss issues of mutual importance.

US Sunshine Act: Year Two

Pharmaceutical and device manufacturers and group purchasing organizations (GPOs) are now in the second year of reporting under the ,Open PaymentsŠ program [often referenced as the Sunshine Act], which requires reports to the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) of certain ownership and investment interests by physicians and their families, as well as transfers of value to physicians (broadly defined) and teaching hospitals. Last fall was the first time that the results of these reports were released to the general public. This session will discuss how the program is unfolding, including some CMS revisions to the reporting requirements, some challenges for reporting entities, and what the reported information may be demonstrating.
