PAYMENTS TO US HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONALS & ORGANIZATIONS
Sun Pharma collects and submits data on transfers of values such as research, meals, travel, gifts, or speaking fees to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Open Payments program (often referred to as the “Sunshine Act”) each year. Open Payments is a national disclosure program that promotes a more transparent and accountable health care system by making the financial relationships between applicable manufacturers and group purchasing organizations and healthcare providers (physicians and teaching hospitals; collectively referred to as “Covered Recipients”) available to the public.
Through the CMS Open Payments website, you can view information about Sun Pharma’s financial relationships with Covered Recipients, as well as the relationships that Covered Recipients maintain with other companies. You can read more about the Open Payments program by going to https://openpaymentsdata.cms.gov.
