This website currently has data reported to the Department by pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers for the six month period of 07-01-2009 - 12-31-09, as well as all of calendar year 2010.
The Department collected data from the companies using the following categories:
|Category Number||Payment Category Name||Payment Category Description|
|1000||Compensation for Bona Fide Services||Consulting, Speaker's Bureaus, etc.|
|2000||CMEs, Third-party Conferences, or Meetings||Payments to Covered Recipients (CRs) in Conjunction with CMEs, third-party conferences and meetings|
|3000||Grants/Educational Gifts||Grants and Educational Gifts to CRs|
|4000||Food||Meals Provided to CRs|
|5000||Education/Training||Payments to CRs in Conjunction with education and training|
|6000||Marketing Studies||Payments to CRs in conjunction with research other than genuine research|
|7000||Charitable Donation||Donations other than donations of presciption drugs, biologics or medical devices|
|8000||Other||Non-exempt payments to CRs of $50 or more|
Please note that "payments" made to covered recipients include any fee, payment, subsidy or other economic benefit with a value of at least $50. The $50 is not a total for the year, but rather per instance. If a covered recipient received two allowable meals valued at $20 and $40, they would not be reportable. However, if a meal was valued at $60, it would be reportable. There are certain types of meals that are not allowed at all, and providing those meals would violate the code of conduct.
