Parker Waichman LLP Comments on Pending Debut of ‘Sunshine Act,’ Which Will Focus on Cases of Allegedly Fraudulent Financial Links Between Doctors and Manufacturers
Date:7/17/2013

New York, New York (PRWEB) July 17, 2013

Parker Waichman LLP, a national law firm dedicated to protecting the rights of victims injured by defective drugs and medical devices, comments on the expected Aug. 1 debut of the Physician Payment Sunshine Act provision of the Affordable Care Act, which is designed to highlight cases of allegedly fraudulent relationships between doctors and pharmaceutical companies and medical device manufacturers, as detailed in the Feb. 8, 2013, Federal Register.

Under the Sunshine Act, all manufacturers of pharmaceuticals, medical devices, and biologicals must report to the National Physician Payment Transparency Program at the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). These outfits are compelled to report how much money they pay doctors and hospitals, as well as certain information regarding the ownership or investment interests held by physicians or their immediate family members in these companies.

Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus (D-Mont.) prominently linked the Sunshine Act with a 16-month U.S. Senate investigation that had revealed previously undisclosed ties between Medtronic and some doctors to whom it had paid $210 million to help promote and launch its Infuse bone graft product. The investigation also disclosed that Medtronic employees had collaborated with physician authors to edit, and sometimes write, clinical studies promoting Infuse for publication in medical journals. “These findings emphasize the value of the… Physician Payments Sunshine Act, which will result in public disclosure of industry payments to physicians starting next year,” said Senator Baucus, according to an Oct. 25, 2012, U.S. Senate Finance
