Reference to Out-of-Date Guideline FREE

JAMA Intern Med. 2016;176(9):1411-1412. doi:10.1001/jamainternmed.2016.5172.

In the Original Investigation titled “Pharmaceutical Industry–Sponsored Meals and Physician Prescribing Patterns for Medicare Beneficiaries,”1 published online June 20, 2016, there was a reference to an outdated version of the American Medical Association (AMA) Council on Ethical and Judicial Affairs’ Opinion on Gifts to Physicians from Industry, in the sixth paragraph of the Discussion. This reference and mention of the AMA should be removed, so that the sentence reads, “Although voluntary guidelines from the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America allow meals and gifts to physicians of up to $100 in value,39 our findings indicate that even payments of less than $20 are associated with different prescribing patterns.” The current AMA guideline is further described in a Letter to the Editor.2 This article was corrected online.
