Statement regarding compliance with California Health & Safety Code § 119402

Pursuant to California Health & Safety Code, Sections 119400 – 119402, (“California Compliance Law”), which requires the adoption of a comprehensive compliance program in accordance with the Office of Inspector General (“OIG”) for the United States Department of Health and Human Services April 2003 publication “Compliance Program Guidance for Pharmaceutical Manufacturers” (“OIG Compliance Program Guidance”).

Acera Surgical, Inc. (“Acera”) has established a Healthcare Compliance Program in accordance with the OIG Compliance Program Guidance and has policies in place to foster compliance with government and applicable industry code requirements and expectations.  Consistent with the requirements of the California Compliance Law and as part of the Healthcare Compliance Program, Acera has established a specific annual aggregate dollar limit of $2000 on gifts, promotional materials, or items or activities that Acera may give or otherwise provide to an individual medical or health professional in California on an annual basis from January 1 to December 31.  The $2,000 limit does not include the value of items expressly excluded by California law, including product samples given to physicians and other healthcare professionals intended for free distribution to patients.

The items and activities covered by the law and Acera policy are primarily directed to the dissemination or communication of medical and scientific information as a resource for health professionals to assist in making clinical or other medical judgments. This limit may be revised from time to time, in which case the revised limit will be published in this section of the Acera website. This limit represents a spending maximum, and the amount spent per medical or health professional may be significantly less than the maximum amount. Acera has established an internal monitoring system designed to help ensure compliance with the annual spending limit in California as well as other spending limits across the United States.

Transparent Relationships with Healthcare Providers

Acera supports all government transparency initiatives.  Accordingly, Acera reports to US state and federal government agencies all applicable payments and other transfers of value for a wide variety of interactions with health care professionals and organizations.  This includes annual reports to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) under the Open Payments law.  For more information about this federal law, please visit the CMS Open Payments website.
