*Clarification of DEA Registration Requirements for Individual Practitioners

Effective January 2007, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) amended its registration regulations to make it clear that when an individual practitioner practices in more than one State, he or she must obtain a separate DEA registration for each State. This amendment will make it easier for practitioners to understand the requirements of the Controlled Substances Act and its implementing regulations. CHA requires proof of the updated DEA when credentialing or recredentialing providers.

Note: A provider with an out of state DEA registration that will be practicing exclusively in Indiana, will only have to obtain a change of address for his/her DEA and it will not be necessary for the provider to apply for an additional DEA
