DCA Notifies Prescribers of Increase to Modest Meal Amount


On September 6, 2022, the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs published updated dollar limits for “modest meals” accepted by prescribers from pharmaceutical manufacturers.

The limits are in place to ensure that relationships with pharmaceutical manufacturers do not interfere with the prescriber’s independent professional judgment.
