Under the final rule of the Sunshine Act, life science manufacturers are required to report on a wide variety of payments made directly or indirectly to physicians and teaching hospitals, with some exceptions. One exception included payments made indirectly to physicians for speaking at accredited continuing medical education (CME) programs. In a surprising reversal of policy, CMS recently removed that exception as part of a host of revisions to the Sunshine requirements. The agency’s statements accompanying the exception’s removal, however, have created confusion as to what will be the practical impact of the change.
  • Analysis of the removal of the CME exception, CMS’s related guidance, and the practical implications
  • Trends in CME and physician involvement
  • Comparison of key stakeholder perspectives
