In July 2016, US Congress passed the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act (CARA), which President Obama signed into law. The law adds a provision that allows pharmacists to In partially fill any Schedule II prescription at the request of the prescriber or the patient, as long as state law does not prohibit such partial filling. CARA language allows the remaining portion of the partially filled prescription to be filled within 30 days of the date the prescription was issued. Currently, Iowa Code would not prohibit such partial filling, but the Board’s rules do not have a specific provision to allow the filling of the remaining portion of the prescription at this time. The Board is in the process of reviewing and updating Chapter 10 and plans to include the CARA language. While the Board’s rule currently does not specifically identify this scenario for partial filling of a Schedule II prescription, a pharmacy that is complying with the provisions in CARA would not be in conflict with Iowa Code or Board rules.
