We also encourage you to visit Holland & Hart’s Coronavirus Resource Site. The Healthcare specific section is under the “Protecting Your Business” tab.

In the meantime, here is a recent update we’d like to share:

DEA Says Health Care Professionals Can Prescribe Controlled Substances During Coronavirus Emergency
mHealth Intelligence (3/18, Heath) reports the DEA announced that health care professionals can prescribe controlled substances, including opioids, via telemedicine during the current coronavirus public health emergency. The DEA’s Diversion Control Division said in a statement, “For as long as the Secretary’s designation of a public health emergency remains in effect, DEA-registered practitioners may issue prescriptions for controlled substances to patients for whom they have not conducted an in-person medical evaluation, provided all of the following conditions are met.” Click here for the DEA’s Diversion Drug Control Division's COVID-19 Information Page.
