Iowa Physician Dispensing Laws & Regulations
Note: PharmaLink has compiled the information below for reference only. State dispensing regulations change frequently and we recommend consulting an attorney or your state medical or pharmacy board with specific questions or to verify your eligibility to dispense.
Physicians in Iowa may dispense non-controlled legend drugs within their medical purview, so long as they meet all labeling requirements and follow all state and federal regulations. Physicians dispensing controlled substances must apply for a controlled substance registration permit and pay a fee (currently $90 every two years). More information on the controlled substance application may be found on the Iowa Board of Pharmacy website here.
Mid-level dispensing (PA dispensing and NP dispensing) varies from state to state, even in states where physicians may dispense. If you are unsure whether or not you may dispense in your state, please contact us for more information.
