MSNJ's Summary of the Rule Limiting Compensation from Pharma to Physicians

Thursday, August 15, 2019  
MSNJ continues to receive questions about the scope of the proposed amendments to the regulation limiting compensation from pharmaceutical companies to physicians. There is good news for physicians who speak at education events and for their peers who attend. Compensation for speaking fees and the cost of meals at education events are no longer capped and do not count toward the $10,000 annual limitation. In addition, research is defined broadly and is not subject to the $10,000 cap. We urge members to read our summary and the proposal to amend the regulation for important details. We appreciate the responsiveness of the state to many of our concerns. Promotional events are still subject to the meal and $10,000 annual cap.
