Responsible Opioid Prescribing Requirement: For the 2019 renewal, each license holder will be required to take two of the required 30 hours via Board-approved courses on responsible opioid prescription. Multiple courses may be combined that add up to two hours as long as they are all on the approved list. Physicians who do not hold a U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration number to prescribe controlled substances are exempted under the rules.
