Under a Connecticut law enacted in 2014, pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers were required to begin reporting payments made to advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs) on July 1, 2015.  This deadline was delayed until 2017 by recently enacted Public Act 15-4.  Additionally, Public Act 15-4 changed the reporting period from quarterly to annually, consistent with other similar federal and state reporting requirements.

Notably, the law also clarifies that the reporting requirements relate only to those APRNs who are “practicing not in collaboration with a physician in the state.”  The law requires the Connecticut Department of Public Health to annually publish on its website by December 1st a list of APRNs who are authorized to practice not in collaboration with a physician.
