Changes Coming Soon!
New Prescription Pad Requirements and PMP Patient History
*Effective September 1, 2018, a new Official Prescription form will be issued with additional security features to prevent fraud.
*Effective June 1, 2019, all versions of the Official Prescription form issued prior to September 1, 2018, will NO LONGER BE VALID.
*Due to the increased number of orders received, the processing time to receive the prescription forms may exceed 6-8 weeks!
*Beginning September 1, 2019, pharmacists and prescribers (other than a veterinarian) will be required to check the patient’s PMP history before dispensing or prescribing opioids, benzodiazepines, barbiturates, or carisoprodol.
Currently, pharmacists and prescribers are encouraged to check the PMP to help eliminate duplicate and overprescribing of controlled substances, as well as to obtain critical controlled substance history information.
