Los Angeles Cancer Network

To increase transparency regarding payments to physicians by drug and medical device companies, Governor Newsom signed AB 1278, which imposes certain additional disclosure obligations on physicians. Beginning on January 1, 2023, physicians will be required to comply with this patient notice and posting requirements. Under this law, physicians must provide patients with an Open Payments database notice. The notice must be provided to each patient at the initial visit in a written or electronic form.
