Potentially Burdensome Reporting Obligations Ahead for Industry Interactions with APRNs in Connecticut

The Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection (Department) recently released its Expenditure Disclosure Form for manufacturers subject to section 75 of Public Act 14-217, which requires manufacturers of a covered drug, device, biological, or medical supply that provides a payment or transfer of value to an advanced practice registered nurse (APRN) practicing in the state to submit the information required by the Department on a quarterly basis.  The first report covering the period January 1, 2015 to March 31, 2015 is due July 1, 2015.  All reports must be submitted via email to DCP.DrugManufacturers@ct.gov.

Significantly, payments and transfers of value will not be reported to the Department in a consolidated form.  Rather, an Expenditure Disclosure Form must be completed and submitted for each APRN to whom the manufacturer provides a reportable payment or transfer of value, potentially creating a significant administrative burden for manufacturers and the Department each quarter.  The following information must be provided on the form: name of manufacturer; first and last name of recipient; medical license number of recipient; Connecticut controlled substance registration (if applicable); date the expenditure was incurred; value/amount of expenditure; nature of the expenditure; purpose of the expenditure; FMV payment description; up to 5 prescribed products to which the expenditure relates, including product type (e.g., pharmaceutical, biologic, medical device, combination product) and product name; name and email address of person completing the form.
