GaryWimsettThe UF College of Medicine, Conflict of Interest Program will be holding an informative Brown Bag session on the Physician Payment Sunshine Act (“OPEN PAYMENTS”) followed by a Q&A. If you consult with Industry, or believe you may in the future, this is an important session.

Points of interest will include:
  • What the new law does
  • Who is required to do what under the new law
  • How to dispute payments reported by Industry to CMS
  • Why keeping payment records is important
Please reserve your seat through Crystal Sutherland as space will be limited.   Please list your name and department in the email and COI Brown Bag in the subject line.
