The reporting obligation for device and pharmaceutical manufacturers, which requires disclosure of payment or other transfer of value to physicians and teaching hospitals, know as the "Sunshine Act" included in the Affordable Care Act (ACA) takes effect today. MDMA has been in constant contact with our members to ensure that inquiries regarding compliance with certain nuances of the law are clearly understood. We held a webinar for our members, "Sunshine Act regulations - Review and Analysis" in February. An archived version of the webinar can be viewed by logging into our website using your individual username/password and clicking here. This issue has been discussed at length during MDMA's Compliance Working Group calls and members continue to receive regular updates regarding implementation.
