While Florida Law previously required physicians to discuss non-opioid alternatives with patients prior to administering or prescribing a Schedule II opioid and provide a copy of the state-approved educational pamphlet on non-opioid alternatives, a new law passed in 2020 (HB 743) that makes some slight changes to the law and REQUIRES a printed copy of the pamphlet to be provided.The new law, effective July 1, 2020, will no longer enable physicians to provide the pamphlet electronically.While we actively lobbied against this measure, ultimately the Legislature did mandate printed copies be provided.


In order to make compliance with the new law a little less onerous, we have partnered with Match-Up to provide Preferred Member Pricing for bundles of the pamphlet to be shipped to our members.


Please note, you can always just print a copy of the state mandated pamphlet, which you can find here , and hand it to your patients.You do not have to order copies of the pamphlet from the state or any other source.


But if you want to hit the easy button and purchase glossy printed versions of the pamphlet from our partners at Match-Up, please click below.
