Missouri PDMP

POSTED IN: Legislative Updates,

The House bill (good version – HB90) passed the House, was assigned to, heard in, and passed out of the Senate Committee this week. This bill is moving not due to a faux endorsement by Senator Rob Schaaf, the long time opponent. The one item that Schaaf insists be included in the bill is mandatory use on all scripts written by physicians. He also wants to make this the “standard of care” which subjects practitioners to more lawsuits, and in lawsuits, more liability.

The Saint Louis county PDMP is set to go into effect later this month. Physicians can now sign-up for access to the system.
