The Governor approved the request of the Board of Pharmacy to extend the expiration date of the emergency regulation for six months as provided by § 2.2-4011 D of the Code of Virginia. Therefore, the emergency regulation will continue in effect through December 11, 2020. The emergency regulation establishes the requirements for delivery of Schedule VI devices directly to an ultimate user or consumer on behalf of a medical equipment supplier upon a valid order from a prescriber or upon request from the medical director of a home health agency, nursing home, assisted living facility, or hospice. The Board of Pharmacy canceled its March meeting due to Executive Order Number Fifty-One (2020) Declaration of a State of Emergency Due to Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) and was unable to take final action for replacement of the emergency regulations until May 18, 2020. The extension is required in order to continue enforcing 18VAC110-50-55, which implements Chapters 241 and 242 of the 2018 Acts of Assembly. The emergency regulation was published in 35:9 VA.R. 1193-1194 December 24, 2018.
