ALERT: ALL ILLINOIS Prescribers Will Be Required to Register with the PMP
Posted on: 12/5/2017

All prescribers possessing an Illinois controlled substances license will soon be required to register with Illinois' Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP). There is also a new requirement to access the PMP before writing an initial prescription for a Schedule II narcotic, such as an opioid.*

The General Assembly recently passed legislation that would require controlled substance license holders to register in Illinois' PMP by Jan. 1, 2018.

While the measure is not yet law, ISMS urges physicians to begin the process for PMP registration NOW.

Here's how:

  • If you are licensed in the state of Illinois to prescribe controlled substances and are not already registered with the PMP, visit the PMP online to initiate your registration.

  • If you experience problems registering, contact the PMP at 217-524-1311, or by email.

Due to the unusually high call volume to the PMP's phone number, ISMS has learned that this number may intermittently not accept phone calls or messages.

ISMS will keep you informed about the requirements of this expected legislation as more information becomes available. If you have questions, contact us at 800-782-4767 or send an email. 

*Some exceptions apply. ISMS is developing a detailed overview of the law and its requirements for checking the PMP.
