Vermont acts to make drug makers' gifts public
The Vermont legislature has passed a law requiring drug and device makers to publicly disclose all money given to physicians and other healthcare providers, naming names and listing dollar amounts. The law is believed to be the most stringent state effort to regulate the marketing of medical products to doctors. It would also ban nearly all industry gifts, including meals, to doctors, nurses, medical staff, pharmacists, health plan administrators, and healthcare facilities.
