Federal Rules Change Announced which will have significant impact on PA practice and health care delivery in Hawaii. Effective October 6, 2014.
Keith Kamita from NED has been advised re: Fast Tracking and says that he will work with the NED administration to update forms and have them available online, hopefully from the day that the Governor signs the new rules change. We should have more news Tuesday.
Hydrocodone Combination Products
became Schedule II Drugs as of midnight 10/6/2014,
coincidentally National PA day and the beginning of PA week
HAPA has been advised by the Executive Director of the Hawaii Medical Board
that implementation of the Schedule II rules change is being "fast tracked" as promised.
To date it has passed through 11 of the 17 step process.
We are still a minimum of 40 days away from implementation.
At this point, the only "Controlled Pain Medications" that PAs can write for are
Tramadol and Tylenol with Codeine products.
Stay tuned to the HAPA website for updates.
