GE Healthcare provides medical technologies and services that are helping to shape a new age of patient care. To provide these technologies and services, GE Healthcare collaborates with Healthcare Professionals and Healthcare Institutions.

The Sunshine Act requires that medical device and pharmaceutical manufacturers publicly report payments or transfers of value made to U.S. licensed physicians or teaching hospitals on an annual basis. This Act is administered by the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).

Nearly any form of payment or value transfer is reportable, including meals, consulting fees, research payments, grants, gifts, & reimbursed travel expenses. The first report will be submitted to CMS in March 2014 and for the first year will cover payments and transfers of value from August 1, 2013 through December 31, 2013.

For any inquiries or questions regarding transparency reporting, please contact the GE Healthcare Transparency Team at transparency.reporting@ge.com.
