Survey: Americans Want to Know About Physician Payments

Survey: Americans Want to Know About Physician Payments

A majority of Americans (64%) want to know about their physicians' financial ties to pharmaceutical companies, and 68% would support legislation requiring pharmaceutical companies to disclose of gifts and payments to physicians, according to this survey from the Prescription Project.

The survey also found that most Americans disapprove of even small gifts to physicians, believe that the pharmaceutical industry has a large influence over prescribing decisions, and support legislation that addresses these issues.
