Additional Medicare Reporting Under the Sunshine Act Rules of 2013
Healthcare reforms enacted in 2010, generally referred to as Obamacare, included new provisions for disclosure of financial relationships between manufacturers of prescription products and physicians. These provisions, called as the “Sunshine Reporting Requirements”, include detailed and timely reporting of all payments made by manufacturers to physicians. The new rules, which will be enforced by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) starting August 2013, would require new accounting practices and disclosures by both the manufactures and physicians, and the findings will be reported in a web-site maintained by the CMS to be available to public. The rules published by CMS provides great details of the kind of relationships, the mode of disclosure, the methods for verifying accuracy of reported information, publication schedule for CMS’s web-site and penalties for non-reporting or erroneous information for both manufacturers and physicians. This webinar will provide a summary of these rules, and tips for assurance compliance to protect both the manufacturers and physicians.
