Description

Prescriptions; off-label use. Provides that a licensed health care provider with prescriptive authority may prescribe, administer, or dispense a drug that has been approved for a specific use by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for an off-label use when the health care provider determines, in his professional judgement, that such off-label use is appropriate for the care and treatment of the patient, and prohibits a pharmacist from refusing to dispense a drug for off-label use if a valid prescription is presented. The bill also requires the Board of Health to include in regulations governing hospitals a provision that no hospital shall deny, revoke, terminate, diminish, or curtail in any way any professional or clinical privilege to a health care provider with prescriptive authority solely on the grounds that such health care provider prescribes, administers, or dispenses a drug that has been approved for a specific use by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for an off-label use.
