Don’t Get Burned by Sunshine: The Latest on the Physician Payments Sunshine Act

Presenter :Gina L. Campanella, ESQ., FACHE
Duration :60 minutes



Product Description

The presentation will provide an overview of the Physician Payments Sunshine Act and corresponding regulations including the history and purpose of these laws. The presenter will provide the background upon which these laws were determined to be necessary and developed. The attendees will be provided with an overview and description of the laws, why they were instituted, what they do and do not cover and who they are and are not applicable to. The law, which was passed on August 1, 2017, requires manufacturers of drugs and medical devices to track and report payments and any items of value given to physician and teaching hospitals. The purpose behind this bill is not to chill these types of transactions, but to ensure they are 100% transparent. All of the information that is reported is often publicly available on the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services website. Physicians need to understand what types of payments are reported, how and when they are reported, why they are reported, and what the potential ramifications of these public reports can be.

Physicians have the ability to review and confirm that any information being reported about them is correct and, if it is not, there is an annual review and dispute process that the presenter will educate the attendees on. The webinar will cover tips to make sure that your report, and reporting about you, is accurate and up-to date.

Finally, the webinar will also provide an overview of what types of compensation and payments are exempt from reporting.
