Maine 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.
Physician dispensing is currently permitted in Maine under the physician’s state medical license. As always, all state and federal regulations for storage and labeling of medications must be followed. Providers who are interested in dispensing are encouraged to review the Maine Pharmacy Act to understand all requirements related to dispensing at the point of care.
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.
Dispensing medications to your patients in Maine offers numerous benefits, including generating additional revenue, improving patient compliance and satisfaction, and reduced pharmacy callbacks, freeing up your staff for other tasks. Patients love saving money and a trip to the pharmacy!
