Additional “The Medical Licensing Board’s Emergency Controlled Substance Rules: Are You Compliant? Are You Ready?” Session Information

This session will summarize and analyze the two new emergency controlled substance rules adopted by the Medical Licensing Board of Indiana that became effective in December 2013. The Emergency Prescribing Rule mandates that physicians follow certain procedures and practices in prescribing controlled substances for chronic pain. Failure to comply with the rule exposes the physician to potential licensing action that could result in suspension or revocation of a physician’s license.

The Emergency Inspection Rule authorizes the Attorney General’s office to conduct inspections of physician’s offices to determine compliance with statutes and regulations relating to prescribing controlled substances for chronic pain. The session will discuss issues, concerns and practical implications of these new rules, including a discussion of the ACLU class action lawsuit to enjoin portions of the new prescribing rule.

The objectives of this session are to fully inform attendees of the requirements of the two new emergency controlled substance rules to equip attendees with information necessary to ensure compliance with the new rules
