Controlled Substances

CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE INFORMATION SHEET

The state of Kentucky has recently passed House Bill 1 in regards to the dispensing of controlled substances. Prescriptions filled for controlled substances are now closely followed and kept on record by the drug enforcement administration (DEA). This is called a KASPER report. The report allows physicians, the DEA and local law enforcement officials to track and prosecute people who are misusing controlled substances. Periodically a KASPER report WILL BE requested on all individuals receiving controlled substance prescriptions from our office. Random drug screens and/or random pill counts can be periodically performed. Refusal or failure to perform either drug testing or pill counts is grounds for termination of the doctor and patient relationship and medication privileges at this office. Illegal substances or medications that are not prescribed and are found on the drug screen is grounds for termination of the doctor and patient relationship and medication privileges at this office. Drug-related felonies are grounds for termination of the doctor and patient relationship and medication privileges at this office. IT IS IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT IT IS NOT A MEDICAL OBLIGATION TO PRESCRIBE CONTROLLED SUBSTANCES TO A PATIENT AT ANY TIME. If it is discovered that you are receiving medications from other physicians without notifying our office IN ADVANCE or that you are using illegal substances your medication privileges at this office will be permanently suspended and you may be dismissed from this practice.
