E Prescribing Contolled Substances in Maryland mandate eff 1-1-2022

Good morning and Happy New Year!

Could you help to clarify the electronic prescribing exemption “The prescription is issued by a health practitioner who writes a low volume of prescriptions for controlled substances, as determined by the Maryland Healthcare Commission.”

What “exactly” is the definition of “low volume”? Can’t seem to locate this clarification on the internet. Can you point me in the right direction?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Sharon, Did you try calling the PDMP at CRISP? I think that they could probably help you on this.
