Virginia’s Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP) Update:

March 21, 2014

Virginia and West Virginia now work together across state lines in the fight against prescription drug abuse as part of the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy Prescription Monitoring Program InterConnect (PMPi). 

The online system allows physicians and prescribers in both states as well as several other states to mutually review a patient’s use of controlled substances, reduce drug diversion and make doctor shopping more difficult.

As of early March 2014, practitioners in Virginia have access to prescription data in West Virginia’s PMP.  West Virginia has also implemented reciprocal capabilities with Virginia’s PMP. 

Other PMPi states as of 2014 include: 

Arizona                                   Michigan

Connecticut                             New Mexico

Delaware                                 North Dakota

Illinois                                     Ohio

Indiana                                    South Carolina

Kansas                                    Tennessee

Louisiana                                 South Dakota
