Clamping down on gifts

February 2, 2007 at 7:34 pm 1 comment

Today’s post will be a quick hitter.   

The State of Illinois passed the Gift Ban Act in 2003. This legislation prohibits state of Illinois employees from receiving gifts from vendors, lobbyists, service providers etc.

I recently came across an interesting article from the American Medical News, More states considering gift disclosure legislation.  More than 15 gift disclosure bills were filed in 2006!  Some were more strict than others. In Massachusetts, the bill would ban all gifts to physicians. 

In my opinion, this flood of legislative activity clearly indicates a public outcry for greater transparency and “above board” business dealings in the healthcare system.
