Texas Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP AWARxE)Effective March 1, 2020, every time a prescriber writes or refills a prescription for an opioid, benzodiazepine, barbiturate or carisoprodol, the prescriber is required to check the patient’s Texas Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP AWARxE) history. The only exception is if you have no connectivity with the network. The Texas Medical Board has not promulgated rules on how it will be monitoring/enforcing this requirement or the penalties associated with noncompliance.
