$100 is “sunshine” number for doctors’ financial conflicts

My lede:

Physicians who receive $100 or more from drugmakers or device manufacturers over the course of a year would have those payments posted to the Web under bipartisan Senate legislation introduced in January.

The new bill is stricter than a version of the measure circulated last year that received support from industry and organized medicine groups, including the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America and the American Medical Association.

The reintroduced legislation, known as the Physician Payments Sunshine Act, came amid another round of disclosure and conflict-of-interest policies announced by doctors and academic health systems.

The whole shebang.
