The 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.
OPEN PAYMENTS requires pharmaceutical and medical device companies (and others) to report payments to physicians and teaching hospitals to CMS for inclusion in a publicly accessible database.
This session will be presented by Gary Wimsett, Jr., JD on July 23rd from 12 to 1 pm in the Shepard Broad Building – conference room 104.
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
