CMS Opens Physician Registration for Sunshine Act
Health Leaders Media

The first part of a two-stage federal registration process for physicians and teaching hospitals that want to review or dispute payments and gifts they received from drug and medical device makers opened on June 1.

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services announced earlier this year that on Sept. 30 it will make public “transfers of value” reported by vendors under the Physician Payments Sunshine Act. Providers will have the opportunity to dispute the vendors’ claims before the reports go public, but only if they register this summer.
