Rauner signs bill to fight opioid abuse and prevent doctor shopping

December 14, 2017
By: Casey Bischel Tribune News Service

Key provisions in fighting opioid abuse were signed into law Wednesday by Gov. Bruce Rauner, but the bill is less stringent than an earlier version written in March.

Doctors and other prescribers, or their designees, will now have to check the state Prescription Monitoring Program the first time they write an opioid prescription for someone, as well as keep a record of their action.
