Important Notice regarding Changes to Indiana Law concerning the Prescribing and Dispensing of Opioids:

Effective July 1, 2017, pursuant to Senate Enrolled Act 226, new laws concerning the prescribing and dispensing of opioids will go into effect. Please be advised, these changes affect any practitioner who maintains an Indiana controlled substance registration and a federal Drug Enforcement Administration registration as well as any pharmacy or pharmacist dispensing opioid prescriptions. The Indiana Medical Licensing Board is currently reviewing the statute should additional considerations for the prescribing of opioids be necessary.  For more information and a copy of the enrolled act, please visit the Indiana General Assembly website here.

Please note, that neither the Professional Licensing Agency nor its boards, can provide legal guidance regarding these laws.  If you require legal assistance, please contact a private attorney.
