HARRISBURG – The General Assembly unanimously approved, and the governor signed into law, legislation to extend a successful program that helps doctors and pharmacists combat opioid abuse. The initiative, known as the Achieving Better Care by Monitoring All Prescriptions (ABC-MAP) program, was set to expire on June 30, 2022. The new law will extend the expiration date to Dec. 31, 2028. The ABC-MAP program allows doctors and other medication prescribers, as well as pharmacists and other medication dispensers, to access a patient’s prescription medication history through an electronic system. Act 72 of 2021 is effective immediately.
