The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid push back implementation of the Physician Payment Sunshine Act as the agency takes time to address more than 300 comments submitted on the proposed gift reporting rule.

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services pushed back the implementation date of the Physician Payment Sunshine Act, delaying the deadline to begin collecting data on gifts or payments worth more than $10.

The 1st reports are still due March 31, 2013, but the agency announced that it will not ask for reports on payments made prior to January 1, 2013, as the Medicare watchdog has yet to issue a final rule on how companies should collect and report their payments.
