Changes to INSPECT Program
The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has published in the Federal Register the Final Rule moving hydrocodone combination products (HCPs) from Schedule III to the more-restrictive Schedule II. This Final Rule imposes the regulatory controls and sanctions applicable to Schedule II substances on those who handle or propose to handle HCPs. This will be effective as of October 6, 2014. Any prescription written as a Schedule III Hydrocodone Combination Product (HCP) prior to October 6, 2014 may be eligible for refill until April 8, 2015.
Tramadol will be federally scheduled (IV) effective August 18, 2014. Pharmacies will be required to report all Tramadol prescription records that are more than a 72-hour supply to INSPECT.
In addition to this change, INSPECT will be moving closer to real-time reporting over the next year and a half as the program goes to 3 day reporting on 7/1/15, then 24-hour reporting effective 1/1/16.
If you have any questions about these changes, please do not hesitate to contact INSPECT at (317) 234-4458 or via email at inspect@pla.IN.gov.
Key Findings and Recommendations from the 2013 IPLA INSPECT Knowledge and Use Survey
- In 2012, the Harold Rogers grant program funded the following study conducted by the Center for Health Policy at the IU Richard M. Fairbanks School of Public Health at IUPUI. The study evaluated the effectiveness of INSPECT and the impact it was making to reduce prescription drug abuse. The Center for Health Policy was solely responsible for analyzing the data and summarizing the findings from the research. The Indiana Professional Licensing Agency, the Indiana State Department of Health and the Attorney General’s Prescription Drug Abuse Prevention Task Force collaborated on this effort.
INSPECT is now sharing live data with Utah! - Indiana now shares data with 20 states.
