Compliance with the Sunshine Act
The Open Payments/Physician Payments Sunshine Act (“Sunshine Act”) was signed into law as part of the Affordable Care Act in March 2010
The Sunshine Act requires certain healthcare companies, including PureLife, to report to the federal government any payments or transfers of value made to “physicians” (such term defined to include dentists), with certain exceptions, such as discounts and rebates provided in the ordinary course of business. The Sunshine Act also requires companies to report any physician ownership or investment interests.
PureLife is committed to ensuring that the data we submit under the Sunshine Act is as accurate as possible and has robust processes in place to enable tracking and reporting in compliance with its obligations.
For more information on the Sunshine Act, please refer to the guidance published by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services at http://go.cms.gov/openpayments.
