House Bill Provides for Full Disclosure of Physician Payments

If you can't make them do the right thing for the right reasons...

From Goozner's Blog on Health:

Bill Includes Full Disclosure of Physician Payments

The House bill would create an internet accessible database that includes all health-related payments to physicians by corporations including gifts, food, or entertainment; travel or trips; honoraria; research funding or grants; education or conference funding; consulting fees; ownership or investment interests; and royalties or license fees. If I'm reading the bill correctly, it says anything over $5 must be reported. (From pg. 635 of the bill.)
