In a letter to House Energy and Commerce Chairman Fred Upton (R-MI) and Ranking Member Frank Pallone (D-NJ), the CME Coalition "wholeheartedly endorses" the Committee's passage of the 21st Century Cures Act (H.R. 6), along with the inclusion of a provision to exempt CME and certain educational materials from the reporting requirements of the Physician Payment Sunshine Act. As an organization that represents a collection of continuing medical education provider companies, in addition to other supporters of CME and the vital role it plays in our health care system, the CME Coalition recognizes the importance of ensuring that physicians are encouraged to continue in their professional development. That's why the Coalition has come out in strong support of the provision to ensure providers that continuing medical education events will continue to be exempt from the Sunshine Act's reporting requirements.
