Arizona's Forty-eighth Legislature passed H.B. 2136 establishing a Controlled Substances Prescription Monitoring Program (CSPMP). The bill requires the Arizona State Board of Pharmacy (ASBP) to establish a controlled substances prescription monitoring program and requires pharmacies and medical practitioners who dispense controlled substances listed in Schedule II, III, and IV to a patient, to report prescription information to the Board of Pharmacy on a weekly basis. The new statutes, A.R.S. Title 36, Chapter 28 link is available under the "Resources" tab.
A.R.S. § 36-2602 of House Bill 2136 requires the ASBP to establish a controlled substances prescription monitoring program that:
The purpose of this legislation is to improve the State’s ability to identify controlled substance abusers or misusers and refer them for treatment, and to identify and stop diversion of prescription controlled substance drugs in an efficient and cost effective manner that will not impede the appropriate medical utilization of licit controlled substances.
The primary function of the ASBP is to provide a central repository of all prescriptions dispensed for Schedule II, III, and IV controlled substances in Arizona. Authorized persons may request information from this repository to assist them in treating patients and identifying and deterring drug diversion, consistent with A.R.S. § 36-2604. Assuring confidentiality and the security of the data is a primary consideration for this program for all aspects to include data collection and storage, transmission of requests, and dissemination of reports.
