Rule 1.2 Definitions.
K. “Pain Management Practice” means a public or privately-owned practice for which 50% or more of the patients are issued, on a regular or recurring basis, a prescription for opioids, barbiturates, benzodiazepines, carisoprodol, butalbital compounds, or tramadol for the treatment of chronic non-cancerous/non-terminal pain. Included in this definition is any practice that advertises and/or holds itself out to provide pain management services. Patients who are treated for pain resulting from a terminal illness do not count against the percentage stated herein.
