Report of Controlled Substances Dispensed
At least once each week, every pharmacist-manager of a pharmacy licensed by the Vermont Board of Pharmacy, including those located outside of Vermont, shall submit a Report of Controlled Substances Dispensed to the VMPS database of all reportable prescriptions dispensed from the pharmacy to a patient in Vermont in the immediately preceding seven (7) days.
-- Vermont Prescription Drug Monitoring Rule (excerpt)
All licensed Vermont pharmacies must report all dispensed II-IV controlled substances on Vermont patients at least every seven days.
If your pharmacy does not stock or dispense controlled substances, fill out the VPMS exemption form and your pharmacy will be exempt from having to submit controlled substance reports to the VPMS.
If your pharmacy dispenses controlled substances infrequently to Vermont residents, the pharmacy is required to submit “zero reports” at least every seven days to the VPMS.
Advisory Notice: Prescriptions for Controlled Substances
Advises customers that prescription information for controlled substances, including certain patient information, will be entered into the VPMS database.
