The Physician Payments Sunshine Act requires eye product manufacturers to report attendance registration information for continuing education, meals and items of value that are supported by grant funding from such companies. The AOA will provide registration information about you to sponsoring companies to allow the companies to fulfill their Sunshine Act reporting obligations. In addition, some states have laws governing the interactions between licensed physicians and pharmaceutical and medical device companies. Please be aware of your state's laws and plan your activities accordingly.
