U.S. to Force Docs to Reveal Lobbying

You may soon get to find out who your doctor is sponsored by. As part of the new health-care law, the Obama administration will require drug companies to reveal the payments they make to doctors for research, consulting, speaking, travel, and entertainment. Nearly a quarter of doctors take cash payments from pharmaceutical and device companies, while nearly two thirds accept gifts of food, according to The New York Times. The new requirements will go into effect sometime after Feb. 17, when the public comment period ends.
