The Process for Pain Management registration is changing. Going forward, all physicians working in a Pain Practice must individually register with the Board. Instructions for registering will be provided on this page once the process has been finalized. The proposed new regulations can be accessed via the link below:
Part 2640 Chapter 1: Rules Pertaining to Prescribing, Administering and Dispensing of Medication
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.
