Physician Financial Transparency Reports (Sunshine Act)

The Physician Payments Sunshine Act (Sunshine Act), which is part of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), requires manufacturers of drugs, medical devices, and biologicals that participate in U.S. federal health care programs to report certain payments and items of value given to physicians and teaching hospitals. Manufacturers will submit the reports to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) on an annual basis. In addition, manufacturers and group purchasing organizations (GPOs) must report certain ownership interests held by physicians and their immediate family members. The majority of the information contained in the reports will be available on a public, searchable website.
