About this Course

This online course gives healthcare providers a guide to compliance with the Physician Payments Sunshine Act (known as The Sunshine Act or Section 6002 of the Affordable Care Act), as well as the Open Payments program.  

If you’re a healthcare manufacturer, distributor, Group Purchasing Organization, or healthcare provider, it’s critical for you to understand what this legislation requires of you. 

The Sunshine Act requires the disclosure of financial relationships between physicians or teaching hospitals and the manufacturers of drugs, medical devices, biologicals, or medical supplies. That means any payments or items of other value from the latter to the former need to be reported to the Centers of Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). 

This course covers all 2021 updates to Sunshine Act. 

At the end of this training, you'll get a certificate of completion and qualify for 0.1 IACET CEUs.
