Topic Background:

Payments made to clinical investigators participating in clinical trials need to be disclosed to CMS under the Sunshine Act provisions of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010, generally referred to as Obamacare. Under the new rules, principal investigators and co-investigators are subject to unprecedented disclosure requirements to the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). These disclosures are in addition to the financial disclosure requirements to the FDA under IND regulations. Sponsors are required to collect detailed financial information and report to the CMS, which will verify it with the investigators, after which the information about each individual investigators will be made available on CMS’s website to general public. Non-compliance could subject both the sponsors and investigators participating in clinical trials to hefty fines.
