The bill authorizes a physician, a physician assistant, and an
advanced practice registered nurse (prescriber) to prescribe and
administer a drug approved by the federal food and drug administration
for an off-label use if:
  • The off-label use of the drug for the indication has
longstanding, common use;
  • There is medical evidence to support the off-label use and
no known evidence contraindicating such off-label use; and
  • The prescriber has provided the patient or a minor patient's
parent or guardian with an informed consent form, and the
patient or parent or guardian has signed the form.
The bill applies the same standard of care for the off-label use of
the drug as for the on-label use of the drug.
The bill clarifies that a pharmacist who fills a prescription for
off-label use is not subject to discipline by the state board of pharmacy.
