I am a current user of the St. Louis County PDMP. Will I automatically have access to the Missouri PDMP?

No. The requirements for accessing the St. Louis County PDMP differ from those of the State of Missouri. To access the Missouri PDMP, users must meet the requirements of 1 CSR 60-1.010.

I currently have access to the St. Louis County PDMP and meet the requirements of 1 CSR 60-1.010. Will I need to re-register with the Missouri PDMP in order to have access?

Registered users of the St. Louis County PDMP that meet the requirements of 1 CSR 60-1.010 will not be required to re-register if the county/jurisdiction where they are practicing has approved St. Louis County to share PDMP information with the Missouri PDMP.

I operate a pharmacy located outside the state of Missouri. Am I required to submit Schedule II, III, or IV dispensation information to Missouri?

No. Under Section 195.600.2, RSMo., the Joint Oversight Task Force for Prescription Drug Monitoring shall have authority to supervise the collection and use of patient dispensation information for prescribed Schedule II, III, or IV controlled substances as submitted by dispensers in the State of Missouri.

Will providers in other states be able to view Missouri PDMP data?

No. Interstate sharing of data is not allowed under 195.600, RSMo.

What version of ASAP will the Missouri PDMP be utilizing?

Missouri will utilize ASAP version 4.2 for the statewide PDMP.

What is the purpose of a prescription drug monitoring program (PDMP)?

The purpose of a PDMP is to reduce abuse and misuse of controlled substances such as opioids by making dispensation information for such substances available to prescribers, dispensers, and health care providers.

Do other states have something similar?

Yes, all other states have legislation for similar systems. 

Will the Missouri PDMP be modeled after an existing PDMP from another state?

PDMPs are created according to laws passed in each state. Missouri’s PDMP is being developed in accordance with Missouri law (Section 195.600, RSMo). 

How does a PDMP help?

By making dispensation information available, PDMPs can help prescribers, dispensers, and health care providers identify patients who may be misusing prescription opioids or other controlled substances and who may be at risk for overdose.

How does a PDMP work?

When a pharmacy dispenses a schedule II, III or IV controlled substance, it submits information about the dispensation to the PDMP. The PDMP makes the information available for practitioners and pharmacists to view when they query the system. Information in the PDMP provides a more complete view of a patient’s prescription history and aids prescribers and dispensers in their decision-making processes.

How long will prescription information remain in the PDMP?

Beginning on August 28, 2023, an individual’s dispensation information will be maintained for a maximum of three years from the date of dispensation. After this three year period, the information will be deleted from the program.

Does the Missouri PDMP require providers to check the PDMP before prescribing or dispensing a Schedule II, III, or IV controlled substance?

Missouri law does not mandate providers to check the PDMP before writing or dispensing a prescription. However, the Substance Use-Disorder Prevention that Promotes Opioid Recovery and Treatment (SUPPORT) for Patients and Communities Act requires the prescriber to check the PDMP prior to prescribing a controlled substance (Schedule II, Schedule III, or Schedule IV) to a MO HealthNet participant. Healthcare providers are strongly encouraged to utilize the PDMP before finalizing prescription decisions for patients.

What information is sent to the PDMP?

Missouri’s PDMP law (Section 195.600, RSMo) requires the following information to be submitted to the PDMP. No information can be added to this list without a change to the PDMP law.

1. The pharmacy’s Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) number;
2. The date of the dispensation;
3.  The following, if there is a prescription:

(a) The prescription number or other unique identifier;
(b) Whether the prescription is new or a refill; and
(c) The prescriber’s DEA or National Provider Identifier (NPI) number;

4. The National Drug Code (NDC) for the drug dispensed;
5. The quantity and dosage of the drug dispensed;
6.  The patient’s identification number including, but not limited to, any one of the following:

(a) The patient’s driver’s license number;
(b) The patient’s government-issued identification number; or
(c) The patient’s insurance cardholder identification number; and

7. The patient’s name, address, and date of birth.

Will veterinarians be required to submit dispensation information to the PDMP?

No. Veterinarians are exempted from reporting in Section 195.600.16, RSMo.

Can I request a report of my prescription history from the PDMP?

Yes. Once the system is operational, there will be a process where individuals may request their specific dispensation information that has been reported to the PDMP.
