Vermont law restricts vendor gifts to physicians

In Vermont, almost $900,000 was spent in 2008 on meals alone provided to physicians from drug companies and medical equipment vendors. Drug reps are going to have to get more creative with their sales techniques now that it will be against the law to bring in those free sandwich platters and take-out. Not only that, but companies will also be required to disclose the payments made to healthcare professionals. The penalty? Up to $10,000 per incident.
