National All Schedules Prescription Electronic Reporting (NASPER) Act Receives Senate Support
Date:6/18/2009

Senator John D. Rockefeller IV and Senator Bob Corker Endorse Universal Coordinated Prescription Monitoring Program

NEW YORK, June 18 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The American Society of Interventional Pain Physicians (ASIPP) announced today that the National All Schedules Prescription Electronic Reporting (NASPER) Act has received the support of Senator John D. Rockefeller IV of West Virginia and Senator Bob Corker of Tennessee.

NASPER was unanimously passed by both the House and the Senate and signed into law on August 11, 2005 by President George W. Bush, and received preliminary funding of $2 million for the Fiscal Year 2009 and 2010. Proposed by ASIPP, with the support of the American Medical Association, the American Society of Anesthesiologists and other organizations, NASPER's purpose is to provide and improve patient access to quality care. It was also created to protect patients and physicians from the deleterious effects of controlled substance misuse, abuse and trafficking. The ultimate goal of NASPER is to have a coordinated prescription monitoring program in all 50 states, which could save hundreds of millions of dollars in prescriptions in the Medicaid and Medicare programs.

"While the preliminary funding of NASPER is a promising start, it is imperative to secure full funding in order to realize its full potential and possibly save countless numbers of lives," said Dr. Laxmaiah Manchikanti, ASIPP CEO and Chairman of the Board.

"The abuse of prescription drugs continues to be a problem that plagues millions of Americans and their families every day," said Rep. Ed Whitfield who first authored the legislation in the 108th Congress. "NASPER is a powerful weapon in the fight against prescription drug abuse that will allow physicians to detect abuse and prevent the practice of doctor shopping across state lines. I am pleased that NASPER has, at long last, received
