On December 29, 2022, the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2023 enacted a new one-time, eight-hour training requirement for all Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA)-registered practitioners on the treatment and management of patients with opioid or other substance use disorders (Medication Access and Training Expansion (MATE) Act). Click here to see the letter from the DEA.
Beginning on June 27, 2023, practitioners will be required to check a box on their online DEA registration form—regardless of whether a registrant is completing their initial registration application or renewing their registration—affirming that they have completed the new training requirement.
The deadline for satisfying this new training requirement is the date of a practitioner’s next scheduled DEA registration submission—regardless of whether it is an initial registration or a renewal registration—on or after June 27, 2023.
This one-time training requirement affirmation will not be a part of future registration renewals.
In response to this need, ASIPP has developed the virtual review course Controlled Substance Management Virtual Review Course: Medication Access and Training Expansion (MATE) Act. This virtual review course will be held on May 20 & 21, 2023. In addition to covering the required Curriculum to Meet MATE Act Requirements for DEA Licensing, it will also provide 20 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Agenda coming soon! Click here to register.
