2022-2023 Ohio Locking Prescription Vial Pilot for Schedule II Medications
Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services (OhioMHAS) is coordinating a pilot program under which Schedule II controlled substances in solid oral dosage formulations are dispensed by participating pharmacies in lockable or tamper-evident containers. The purpose of the program is to determine whether the dispensing of Schedule II drugs has a measurable impact on decreasing their diversion, misuse and abuse and should be promoted as best practice.
Interested pharmacies can volunteer to participate in the pilot and will experience several material benefits including:
- Validation of Reimbursement for a New Revenue & Profit Stream in the Long Term
- A Pro-Active Response to a Well – Documented Second-Order Effect of the COVID Pandemic
- Prevention of Diversion, and in Particular Teen Initiation, in Ohio Communities
- Improvement of Patient Safety, Awareness, Clinical Outcomes and Quality of Care
