Comments on the Proposed
DEA Regulation

The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has proposed a regulation which will require an in-person visit between doctor and patient prior to the prescribing of certain drugs. While telehealth provides access for many patients with chronic disease or disability – there is the opportunity for abuse.

We believe a nuanced approach is needed, given that so many with chronic pain depend on these drugs, while we support the intent to require in-person visits before drugs are prescribed above recommended pain control dosages. The dosage prescribed for assisted suicide is massive, posing a greater risk to the community.  This will help minimize any opportunity for abuse.

We join other opponents of assisted suicide providing comment on this new rule, knowing that it will result in strengthening the doctor/patient relationship and result in a more complete evaluation before drugs for the purpose of assisted suicide are prescribed.
