Federal and local governments have generated laws and authoritative regulations to enforce the management of conflicts of interest and encourage ethical business practices in medicine.

Federal Regulations:

Health Care Reform:

  • H.R.3200 - America's Affordable Health Choices Act of 2009
     Signed into law on March 23, 2010.
  • Patient Physician Sunshine Act Provision (Requirements on financial relationships between manufacturers and distributors of covered drugs, devices, biologicals, or medical supplies under Medicare, Medicaid, or CHIP and physicians and other health care entities and between physicians and other health care entities, including disclosure). This component of the bill requires that starting in 2012, medical device and pharmaceutical companies will record physician payments over $10 and that all payments be publicly disclosed.
