If an APRN practices under the Georgian OCGA Act 43-34-23, the APRN sees the patient, makes the diagnosis (s), determines the course of treatment, and then calls in a prescription under the name of his doctor cooperating at the pharmacy – just like a nurse or medical assistant. This also applies if the doctor has not evaluated the patient at all. A protocol agreement is signed in accordance with OCGA 43-34-23 of the act and kept on site, but is not sent to the Medical Directorate, so no tax is required. According to OCGA 43-34-25 version of the law, the APRN has signed its own name on the recipes. This type of protocol agreement must be submitted to the Medical Review Board within 30 days of signing (with a $150 fee) and a copy must be kept in your office. If the NPA also prescribes controlled substances, it must not use the DEA number issued to its cooperating physician, but must have its own DEA number. DEA numbers are only issued for 3 years at a time, at a price of $731. If your doctor wants you to write for controlled substances, ask them to pay these fees because they require something you wouldn`t otherwise have to practice. Don`t be persuaded to use your number instead to save money, because it`s against the law! More importantly, the name of APRN on all these recipes allows us to recognize ourselves as legitimate suppliers, without fear of being monitored and monitored. Some of you are already aware of this, but for those who are new graduates or who have come out of the outside, it is instructive. This comes directly from the GA Composite Medical Board office: The PA supervisor is the primary supervisor of PA practice monitoring, as described by the AP`s position.
