Dollars for Docs

FIND OUT IF YOUR DOCTOR IS ON THE ‘TAKE’!

By Charles Ornstein, Lena Groeger, Mike Tigas, and Ryann Grochowski Jones, ProPublica. Updated December 13, 2016

Pharmaceutical and medical device companies are now required by law to release details of their payments to a variety of doctors and U.S. teaching hospitals for promotional talks, research and consulting, among other categories. Use this tool to search for general payments (excluding research and ownership interests) made from August 2013 to December 2015.

Unfortunately, they aren’t required to disclose research and ownership interests, which would reveal even more conflicts of interest.
