Registration for Medication Dispensing
In Oklahoma, physicians may dispense medications once registered with the state medical board. Additionally, Osteopathic Physicians and Dentists must apply annually for a Registration to Dispense Dangerous Drugs. Registration shall be done on or before the first day of July annually. Each such application shall be accompanied by the appropriate fee.
If dispensing in multiple locations, the physician shall have a separate permit for each location. All such location addresses shall be provided to the Board.
Those wishing to dispense Controlled Substances, in addition to their DEA license, must also register for a Controlled Substance Registration: (OBNDD) which must be address specific to the location in which meds will be dispensed.
Physician Assistants and nurse practitioners may not dispense in the state of Oklahoma.
