289 - For a branded patient education brochures focused on disease/symptom management with only general (drug class-based, non-promotional) mentions of treatment, would disease-related information sourced from a national non-profit patient association be acceptable?

  • I suspect there is a typo in your question. A branded patient piece may not discuss the broader product class or other product classes/therapies. Branded patient information is supposed to educated simply about the prescribed product and the medical condition. With that said, in either a proper branded or unbranded patient piece, a standard setting organization (e.g. the source described in your question) could be considered provided the content complies with the other code sections (e.g. s3.1).
