5 The commercial press category encompasses those writers and editors who represent for-profit publications that are circulated among the medical device industry and the business community. Their attendance at AANS Annual Scientific Meeting is to network and highlight the activities of device or pharmaceutical companies. Business, medical device and manufacturing publications that do not contain editorial content related to the scientific program (research) presented at the meeting fall into the category of "commercial press" publications. In addition, to qualify for this registration category, you must be on the editorial staff of the publication you represent. Sales or marketing personnel do not qualify for this reduced-fee registration category.

Membership Dues Payment Option
A convenient payment option enables members to include dues with their Annual Scientific Meeting registration. Renewal notices will be sent to all AANS members. If you have yet to pay your membership dues, you can include your dues payment with your registration payment. Simply check the appropriate box on the registration form and include the appropriate amount with your payment.

Your NPI at the 2013 Annual Scientific Meeting
As part of the healthcare reform legislation signed into law in March 2010, the Physician Payment Sunshine Act requires medical device, biologic, and drug companies to publicly disclose gifts and payments made to physicians, beginning in 2013. For US healthcare providers, companies must also report any payment or other transfer of items with a minimum value of $10/payment or $100/year to the Department of Health & Human Services (HHS). The National Provider Identifier (NPI) number, a unique identification number assigned to each US healthcare provider, will be used to record and track these transactions.

To facilitate a quick and accurate record of any transactions during the 2013 AANS Annual Scientific Meeting that may need to be tracked and recorded under the law, the AANS is requesting that US healthcare providers supply their NPI number as part of their registration for the meeting. This information will NOT be printed on your badge, but will be included in your bar code encoded data so that exhibitors can record and track any reportable transactions.

US healthcare providers should understand that, although supplying your NPI number as part of your Annual Meeting registration is voluntary, the reporting of transactions with companies under the Sunshine Act is mandatory.
Your NPI number is public; you may search the NPI Registry.
