Pharma Company Disclosures
The companies below disclose financial relationships with physicians, and sometimes other health providers. Some of these companies (or one of their subsidiaries) are required to disclose under corporate integrity agreements with the Inspector General of the U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services. Beginning in 2014, under the Physician Payment Sunshine Act, every pharmaceutical and medical device company will be required to report this information to the federal government.
