NEW YORK PUBLISHES ITS PROPOSED RULES FOR USE OF I-STOP/PMP

Date: August 30, 2013
Source: New York Department of Health

Proposed Regulations, dated 8/27/13, state:

These proposed regulations would require practitioners to consult the PMP for the purpose of reviewing
a patient’s controlled substance history prior to prescribing for or dispensing to that patient any controlled substance listed on schedule II, III, or IV. Such history would be required to be obtained from the PMP
no more than 24 hours prior to the practitioner prescribing or dispensing any controlled substance to that patient. Confirmation of such consultation or the reason for failing to consult would be noted in the patient’s medical chart by the practitioner. The Proposed Regulations also contain proposed exceptions to the inquiry mandates. To read the proposed regulations, click here.

WE WILL FOLLOW WITH UPDATES AND POST THE FINAL REGULATIONS WHEN AVAILABLE. New York licensed prescribers are encouraged to review all of the material on the NY I-STOP/PMP page to ensure compliance.
