2013 INS Annual Convention & Industrial Exhibition
Government and Industry Regulations Affecting Educational Programs

AdvaMed Code, PhRMA Code, and Individual State Laws
Many exhibitors at the INS Annual Convention & Industrial Exhibition abide by the AdvaMed Code of Ethics on Interactions with Health Care Professionals or the PhRMA Code on Interactions with Healthcare Professionals and can no longer provide giveaways that are not educational in nature. In addition, to comply with individual state laws, exhibitors can no longer provide refreshments to health care professionals from Maine, Massachusetts, Vermont, Minnesota, and the District of Columbia in their booths or at their sponsored events. We appreciate your understanding and support.

Disclosure of National Provider Identifier (NPI#) - NEW!
Due to new federal health care reform laws in effect, exhibitors and sponsors are now required to file an annual report to the federal government disclosing items of value (such as educational giveaways, refreshments, etc.) given to health care professionals. This report must include the business address of the recipient and, if the recipient is a physician, the specialty and National Provider Identifier (NPI#) of the covered recipient.

If you already have an NPI number, please include this on your registration form. For more information, visit the the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services web site.
