Florida NonOpioid Alternatives Rule - Effective July 1, 2019

House Bill 451 - Nonopioid Alternatives

House Bill 451, Nonopioid Alternatives, was approved by Governor DeSantis and is effective July 1, 2019. This Florida Board of Medicine bill requires that before providing anesthesia or prescribing, ordering, dispensing, or administering an opioid listed as a Schedule II controlled substance to treat pain, the patient must be informed about available nonopioid alternatives. 


A healthcare practitioner will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of using nonopioid alternatives. Under the new law, the department is required to develop an educational pamphlet about using nonopioid alternatives and post the pamphlet on the department’s website. Healthcare practitioners must provide the patient with this educational pamphlet. Those healthcare practitioners providing emergency services and care are exempt from these requirements.


In addition to the Florida Department of Health posting the pamphlets, RSL Healthcare Consulting, LLC also has printed pamphlets.  PLEASE Call or Email us to learn more about our services and we would be happy to provide you with your first 25 pamphlets at NO CHARGE!
