Updates on the Department of Health's Emergency Orders that are of interest to FSIPP.

Emergency Order 20-002, which among other things, allows physicians to renew controlled substance prescriptions and medical marijuana certifications for existing patients via telemedicine without having to conduct an in-person physician examination. This Emergency Order was set to expire on April 15th, however, Emergency Order 20-004 extended the order until May 8th. DOH Emergency Order 20-007 was issued by Surgeon General Scott Rivkees and extends Emergency Order 20-002 again, until May 31st, and additionally, DOH Emergency Order 20-009 was issued by Surgeon General Rivkees which again extends Emergency Order 20-002 until June 30th, 2020.

Bills, FDA Can Help Deter Abuse of Prescription Opioids

Harold Cordner, MD
