DEA registration, transfer, and office locations

September 1st, 2019 11 Min read DEA registration, transfer, and office locations Blog
Every physician who administers, prescribes, or dispenses any controlled substance must be registered with the federal Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).The DEA’s policy regarding locum tenens states that an individual physician may use his or her DEA registration number issued for a given location at other locations, including across state lines, if three conditions are met. First, the DEA registration number is used in the course of activities carried out on behalf of another DEA registrant. Second, the necessary licenses have been obtained from the jurisdiction(s) in which the activities will be carried out. Third, the activities are temporary in nature. CompHealth encourages physicians to transfer registration to the state of their assignment. Our experts have compiled an in-depth article to streamline the process for you and make it as easy as possible.
