This image provided by the Department of Health and Humans Services shows the Open Payments page of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. They’re calling it "Open Payments," but the government’s new website doesn’t make it easy to find out whether your doctor is getting freebies, travel or other financial benefits from drug companies and medical device manufacturers. For now, the website lacks a "Find Your Doctor" button.  (AP Photo/HHS)

FILE - In this Monday, April 30, 2007 file photo, application technologist Jennifer Gaul holds a handful of wheat gluten at MGP Ingredients Inc. in Atchison, Kan. In results published in the New England Journal of Medicine on Wednesday, Oct. 1, 2014, a study of 944 children throughout Europe tested the idea that an early start on gluten might build tolerance to it. Infants were given either small amounts of gluten or a placebo every day from 4 to 6 months of age. About 5 percent of both groups developed celiac disease by age 3. This and an Italian study give disappointing news for parents looking for a way to prevent celiac disease in babies at higher risk for it because of family history. (AP Photo/Charlie Riedel)

FILE - In this undated image provided by Merck, a model holds a Nexplanon birth control hormonal implant. In results published in the New England Journal of Medicine on Wednesday, Oct. 1, 2014, giving teens free birth control encourages them to use long-acting methods and greatly cuts the chances they will become pregnant or have an abortion. Doctors say the results show that when money is not a factor, teens will chose IUDs and hormone implants over less reliable methods such as birth control pills or condoms. (AP Photo/Merck)
