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.
