Webinar / The Sunshine Final Rule: What Medical Schools and Teaching Hospitals Need to Know
The final rule for the physician payment (‘Sunshine’) provisions of the Affordable Care Act were published in the Federal Register on Friday. The regulations mandate the creation of a publicly available database listing certain payments made to physicians or teaching hospitals by manufacturers of drugs, devices, biologicals, and medical supplies reimbursed by federal health care programs. The AAMC will be hosting a webinar entitled, “The Sunshine Final Rule: What Medical Schools and Teaching Hospitals Need to Know,” on Thursday, February 21, 2013 from 1:00-2:00 EST to present the major provisions of the final rule, the changes from CMS’ proposed rule of December 19, 2011, and the impact on clinical faculty and teaching hospitals.
The webinar is free to individuals who work at AAMC member institutions, but registration is required. The registration form provides an opportunity to submit questions in advance for the presenter, Heather Pierce, JD, MPH, AAMC Senior Director for Science Policy and Regulatory Counsel.
