Prescription Monitoring Program. Requires the information in the possession of the Prescription Monitoring Program disclosed by the Director of Health Professions about a specific recipient who is a member of a Virginia Medicaid managed care program to a physician or pharmacist employed by the Virginia Medicaid managed care program to be provided via electronic access to the Prescription Monitoring Program in real time. The bill requires such electronic access to be identical to that provided to a prescriber or a dispenser who receives information in the possession of the Prescription Monitoring Program from the Director. The bill provides that such physicians or pharmacists employed by the Virginia Medicaid managed care program may delegate their authority to access such information and may be licensed in a jurisdiction other than the Commonwealth.
