Disclosure of Expenditures for Prescribed Products

Vermont law bans most gifts and requires reporting of most expenditures of pharmaceutical products, biological products, and medical devices to Vermont health care providers, including expenditures for samples (including vouchers) and clinical trials. For information on reporting under the law, scroll down to see Vermont law and the Office’s guidance.

The law also requires companies with expenditures to register with the Attorney General’s Office by January 1 of each year, and to report expenditures and distribution of samples by April 1. We encourage all manufactures to sign up for the prescribed products listserve or register a compliance officer if the company will have expenditures to report. This will allow us to readily contact you with updated information on how to comply with Vermont law.

In addition, we encourage all manufactures doing business in Vermont to sign up for the prescribed products listserve. This will allow us to readily contact you with updated compliance information.

Detailing: Pharmaceutical Marketer Price Disclosure Law

Vermont’s Pharmaceutical Marketer Price Disclosure law, 18 V.S.A. § 4633, requires pharmaceutical marketers to provide doctors with comparative price information, so that doctors can take cost into consideration when prescribing drugs within a therapeutic class. The Vermont Attorney General has issued a Guide on how to comply with the law, model forms (short form and long form), and Frequently Asked Questions.
