After the failure of the legislature to pass a prescription drug monitoring program, Governor Greitens issued an Executive Order establishing one. Details of the plan are not available at this time, but MAOPS will be monitoring the implementation. Concerns do exist that the PDMP will be more punitive in nature than desired by most medical societies, including MAOPS. MAOPS has lobbied for years for a program that is non-punitive in nature towards physicians but ensures that patients needing pain medication can receive it. Punitive programs may lead to fewer prescribers of opioids for patients who need them.
