Rules governing prescribers' acceptance of compensation from pharmaceutical manufacturers became effective on January 16, 2018, Governor Christie's last day of office. Even with improvements urged by MSNJ and adopted, the rules are the most restrictive in the nation. Together with other stakeholders we were able to get a broader definition of research and educational activities, ensuring that they are exempted from the $10,000 annual cap. We were also able to remove the limitation of four meals per year from all pharmaceutical companies combined. However, the $15 per meal limit was adopted and is now the law. Read the rule and our summary. We will update members with Q&As and guidance documents as the state makes them available.
