  • On February 8, 2013, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) published the Final Rule implementing the requirements in section 6002 of the Affordable Care Act, which added section 1128G to the Social Security Act, commonly known as the Physician Payments Sunshine Act (the “Sunshine Act”). The Final Rule was published after a significant delay to allow CMS to process and respond to the voluminous comments it received pursuant to its Proposed Rule (which was published in December 2011) and the input of stakeholders.
