Registration for Medication Dispensing
In Illinois, Physicians may dispense non-controlled legend medications under their medical license so long as they are in compliance with Illinois state and federal law. Anyone who prescribes or dispenses a controlled substance must have a license issued by the Department of Financial and Professional Regulation in accordance with the Illinois Controlled Substance Act.
Physicians must register each location where controlled substances are held and pay a $5 registration fee.
Physician assistant and nurse practitioner dispensing varies state by state so check with the state pharmaceutical board for more specific information.
