It depends. Under Section 6002 of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (also known as “OPEN PAYMENTS” or the “Physician Payments Sunshine Act”), all drug and device manufacturers are required to report to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) information concerning payments made to physicians and teaching hospitals on an annual basis, and CMS will make the details available for public viewing on its website. This may result in public disclosure of the following:

Grant payments made by Gilead to teaching hospitals (as defined by CMS)

Grant payments made by Gilead that are used by the grantee to fund payments or other transfers of value to U.S. physicians (defined as an M.D., D.O., podiatrist, optometrist, licensed chiropractor, dentist or dental surgeon)

Gilead representatives are available to provide technical assistance with this grants portal but cannot comment on specific grant requests.
