Kristen Forrestal, OLLS, presented Bill 2 (Attachment D) and amendments 2, 3, 5, 6,7, 8, 9, and 10 (Attachments R, S, T, U, V, W, X, and Y). The bill limits to a seven-day supply, the number of opioid pills that a health care provider may prescribe to a patient. At the discretion of the provider, the prescription may include one refill for an additional seven-day supply. The bill includes a number of exceptions to the limitation and allows for a health care provider to electronically prescribe opioids.

When querying the PDMP, each health care provider or designee is required to identify his or her area of health care specialty or practice.
