Dear Members: 
 
We know that many members have been anxious to learn more about the exemption process for the Physician Payment Disclosure (Sunshine List). Physician payments are due to be disclosed by November 9, 2020. We have just received notice that the application process for exemption is now open. 
 
There is a three-week window for applications that closes on October 7, 2020. Please find the information that government has provided in the two links below.
