Ryan Haight Act
The Covid Public Health Emergency expired on May 11, 2023. Under the Ryan Haight Act of 2008, where controlled substances are prescribed by means of the Internet, the requirement is that the prescribing Practitioner must have conducted at least one in-person medical evaluation of the patient. We are required to adhere to the law and will require the patients who are prescribed controlled substances (please see examples below) to be seen in person by your provider (Psychiatrist, NP, PA) prior to writing the next prescription for a controlled substance. After May 11, if you have not had an in-person visit to be prescribed a controlled substance, you will need an in-person visit. Please call your office directly, we are happy to help you book your next in-person appointment.
