Fact Sheet: Indian Health Service and Military Medical Prescription Drug Monitoring Program Requirements

Description: 

Prescription Drug Monitoring Programs (PDMPs) can help clinicians improve decisions regarding opioid prescribing. However, since state laws and regulations governing access to these systems often apply only to providers licensed in the states in which the PDMP is located, and many federal health care workers are not so licensed, many federal providers are not subject to requirements. This fact sheet outlines the policies of the three federal health care institutions with regard to the use of PDMPs when prescribing opioids.
