Ohio PDMP – 4.2A Reporting Requirement

Ohio PDMP – 4.2A Reporting Requirement

As of Friday, December 29, 2017, prescribers in Ohio must include the first four alphanumeric characters (e.g., M16.5) of the diagnosis code (ICD-10), or the full procedure code (Current Dental Terminology - CDT), on all opioid prescriptions, which will then be entered by pharmacies into OARRS (Ohio Automated Rx Reporting System).

Pharmacies may begin reporting in ASAP 4.2A format now; both ASAP 4.2 and ASAP 4.2A are accepted. Under rule 4729-5-30, only ASAP 4.2A will be accepted as of December 29. Beginning June 1, 2018, this requirement will take effect for all other controlled substance prescriptions.
