Date:5/7/2009

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J., May 7 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- In letters to Senate Special Committee on Aging Chairman Herb Kohl (D-WI) and Senate Finance Committee Ranking Member Charles Grassley (R-IA), Johnson & Johnson today announced its support for the Physician Payments Sunshine Act of 2009 (S. 301). The company also committed to begin voluntarily disclosing payments made to physicians by its U.S. pharmaceutical, medical device and diagnostics companies.

"We are in favor of greater transparency regarding the relationships between healthcare companies and physicians," said Johnson & Johnson chairman and CEO William C. Weldon. "We continue to believe such transparency is in the best interest of patients, payers, other stakeholders in healthcare and the industry itself."

The U.S. pharmaceutical companies of Johnson & Johnson will begin voluntarily providing information about the payments that they make to physicians on their respective web sites beginning in the first half of 2010. Reporting will be expanded to include the company's U.S. medical devices and diagnostics units and will reflect the general provisions of the Physician Payment Sunshine Act by June 30, 2011.

"Since we first introduced the bill, there has been a groundswell of support from every corner. I wholeheartedly welcome the endorsement from Johnson & Johnson. Patients want to know that they can fully trust the relationship they have with their doctor. I am confident this legislation will pass during the 111th Congress," said Senator Herb Kohl (D-WI), Chairman of the Special committee on Aging.

Weldon said, "Greater transparency will enhance trust and recognition that collaborations between pharmaceutical and device manufacturers and physicians lead to important medical advances that save lives. I commend Senators Kohl and Grassley for a constructive exchange of ideas and look forward to continuing to work wi
