Cash & Carry Dispensing

Physician in-office medication dispensing is regulated on the state level, with widely varying rules. The American Medical Association’s official policy states that physicians have a “right to dispense drugs and devices when it is in the best interest of the patient and consistent with AMA’s ethical guidelines” (Motion of the Board, February 1988; Reaffirmed, BOD-1, AM 2014). Most states have opted to follow the AMA guidelines and allow physician dispensing within certain guidelines. Many states allow physicians to dispense under their state medical license, others require a permit for controlled substance dispenses, and some require a permit for dispensing any legend drugs.

We have compiled information on each state’s physician dispensing regulations, which you can view by clicking on the state in the map below. This information is provided for reference only. Regulations change regularly and we do our best to keep up to date with the latest rules, but you should consult an attorney or your state medical or pharmacy board to verify your eligibility to dispense and ensure compliance with state and federal regulations.
