Chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Commerce, Manufacturing and Trade, and Peter DeFazio (D-OR) recently introduced the Protect Continuing Physician Education and Patient Care Act, H.R. 293.
The bill is in response to the Physician Payment Sunshine Act’s “unintended consequence of over-burdensome reporting requirements that made access to educational materials for physicians difficult to obtain,” according to the accompanying Press Release.
This bipartisan legislation “would allow physicians full access to the most up-to-date educational materials like textbooks and journals so they may deliver the best care.”
