A Reminder for Physicians Licensed to Prescribe Controlled Substances

May 20, 2022

If you are a prescriber, are you registered with Illinois’ Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP)?

A law that took effect at the start of 2018 requires all those licensed to prescribe controlled substances in Illinois to:

  • Register with Illinois' PMP
  • Document an attempt to check the PMP before writing an initial prescription of a Schedule II narcotic, such as an opioid

If you have questions, please contact the PMP by email. You may also contact the ISMS Health Policy Research and Advocacy team by email for assistance.
