Thursday, August 01, 2013

Beginning on August 1, 2013, certain manufacturers of drugs, devices, biologicals, or medical supplies covered by Medicare, Medicaid or the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) began collecting data on financial relationships with physicians including gifts or other transfers of value to a physician more than $10 in value, or $100 in total gifts per calendar year given to a physician. 

By March 31, 2014, these companies will begin reporting these transfers of value to physician disclosures to the "National Physician Payment Transparency Program: Open Payments.  This is an online public portal hosted by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), which will make this data publicly available no later than September 30, 2014.
