This bill requires certain boards within the Office of Professional Licensure and Certification (OPLC) to adopt rules relative to queries from the Prescription Drug and Monitoring Program (PDMP) by professionals treating patients with substance use disorders. The OPLC states that, by adding an additional sub-category of treatment professionals (social workers involved in substance use disorder treatment) to the list of those allowed to review PDMP information, the bill may potentially result in an increase in noncompliance investigations conducted by its Pharmacy Unit. For this reason, the bill may indirectly increase OPLC expenditures.
