Navigating New Pain Medicine And Prescription Drug Laws In The Sunshine State





ARLINGTON, Va., March 19, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- New pain medicine and prescription laws in Florida, along with the state's Patient Self-Referral Act, can lead to steep penalties and costly mistakes for the unwary. Healthcare lawyers and advisors with clients in Florida need a clear understanding of the new legislation, including its reporting requirements for a statewide prescription drug monitoring database; penalties for doctors who overprescribe painkillers; requirements for pain clinics to register with the state; and the obligation for pharmacies, drug wholesalers, and pharmacists to report questionable purchases.

Join us on March 20 at 1 p.m. ET for a 90-minute Bloomberg BNA webinar, Avoiding Medical Practice Disaster: Pain Medication, Prescription and Other Commonly Misunderstood Laws. Healthcare attorneys Lester Perling and Alan Gassman will discuss the nuances of the new laws and offer tactics for practitioners who must advise clients on how to maintain compliance.

Because Florida has different and often stricter civil and criminal rules than those mandated by the federal government, and because of the Florida Attorney General's active enforcement of the state's tougher rules, this webinar is critical for professionals with Florida clients – businesses which may be in compliance with federal self-referral, billing, patient privacy, anti-kickback, non-physician-owned practice, advertising, and other regulations – but who could unwittingly face liability in Florida.

The speakers will provide extensive materials which help to simplify an otherwise extremely complex and confusing labyrinth of rules and regulations. Aimed at healthcare lawyers and advisors who represent corporate or individual medical practices, the presentation will examine the many potentially costly pitfalls and provide sound advice on how to avoid them.
