Sunshine Act and NPI Numbers

The Sunshine Act
Under the Physician Payment Sunshine Act (Section 6002 of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act), medical device, biologic, and drug companies are required to track all payments and transfers of value (TOV) to U.S. healthcare providers made on or after Jan. 1, 2012.

To assist 2019 ACMG Annual Meeting exhibitors in complying with the federal mandate, ACMG is requesting that attendees supply their NPI number (if applicable) when registering for the meeting. The NPI number will be imbedded in the bar code data on the attendee’s badge—it will NOT be printed on the badge. Exhibitors will download the NPI information by swiping the badge through the lead retrieval system so that they can record and track any reportable transactions.
