Physician Payment Sunshine Act

The Physician Sunshine Act,§ 6002 of the Affordable Care Act (P.L. 111- 148 (2010)) (“the Sunshine Act”), requires eye product manufacturers to report attendance registration information for any SECO 2016 continuing education courses and/ or meals or other items of value which are supported (in whole or in part) by grant funding from such companies. SECO’s sponsors in the pharmaceutical and device industries have asked SECO to assist them in gathering this information. In honoring these requests, SECO will attempt to gather and provide its sponsors with the information required by the Sunshine Act. To best facilitate this process, companies covered by the Sunshine Act should ensure that their National Provider Identifier (NPI) number is correct in the National Plan and Provider Enumeration System (NPPES) and that the address used for registration is the same as the primary office address reported to the states and to the NPI database. The SECO Symposium Series is supported by the SECO 2017 Champion Program Premier Partners. As part of SECO’s commitment to complying with relevant legal requirements, we regret that meals cannot be provided to healthcare professionals licensed in the states of Massachusetts, Minnesota or Vermont, or who are affiliated with any state or federal institution that prohibits the acceptance of meals at industry-sponsored events. Alternative options are available for attendees that are licensed in one of these states, affiliated with any such institution or simply prefer not to accept a reportable meal during the Symposium Series. Please contact SECO International at (770) 451-8206 for more information on these requirements.
