Legislation sponsored by State Senator Ellen Karcher requiring physicians to disclose to patients money and gifts accepted from pharmaceutical companies would complement the Attorney General’s Advisory Task Force on Physician Compensation. The bill, S-2660, is currently in the Senate Health, Human Services and Senior Citizens Committee.
“Pharmaceutical companies who attempt to influence physicians with lavish gifts are essentially participating in a form of pay-to-play,” said Karcher. “We need to ensure patients receive top quality and unbiased care from their physicians.”
