Notice of Rulemaking Activity


Regulatory Project 2018-2 ~ LA Uniform Prior Authorization Form

The Board published its Notice of Intent regarding  promulgating a new rule to establish the Louisiana Uniform Prescription Drug Prior Authorization Form. The Rule will require all pharmacies, prescribers, and third-party payors to use this form when prior authorizations for prescription drugs are required. The Notice of Intent was published in the August 2018 edition of the Louisiana Register. The board then convened a joint public hearing with the La. State Board of Medical Examiners on September 28 to receive public comments and testimony on the proposed rule and form. The Board of Pharmacy received letters from two commentators with questions, comments, and recommendations; we have replied to the commentators.  The Board has determined to make no changes to the original proposed rule and form, and further, to move forward with the promulgation process.

The Board has filed its Second Report to the Joint Legislative Oversight Committee on Health and Welfare.  Subject to review by that committee, the Board proposes to publish the original proposed rule and form as a Final Rule in the December 2018 edition of the Louisiana Register with a delayed effective date of January 1, 2019.
