Waiver Request Form (New or Renewal)

This process has changed! Please read carefully as you may not need a waiver.

At their meeting on September 28, 2023, the Kansas Board of Pharmacy approved a new Guidance Document regarding electronic prescribing of opioids in Kansas. This includes a change in the process for requesting a new waiver and for renewing an existing waiver.

If the prescriber makes a self-determination that they qualify for one of the provisions in K.S.A. 65-16,128(a)(1) or (a)(3)-(a)(8), the prescriber shall automatically be exempt from the electronic transmission requirement, and the prescriber should not request a waiver. Exempt providers do not need a waiver.

If the prescriber believes that they cannot comply with the electronic prescribing requirements due to one of the reasons in K.S.A. 65-16,128(a)(2): "economic hardship or technological limitations that are not reasonably within the control of the prescriber, or other exceptional circumstances exist," the prescriber shall request a waiver from the Board using the C-700 ePrescribing Waiver Request.

Approved waivers will expire on June 30th and December 31st of each year. The Board will not notify regarding any approval but will update the list (above) with all waiver-approved prescribers.
