Prescription fraud is a significant and growing problem in Connecticut and nationwide. The biggest factor driving prescription fraud is the increase in abuse of prescription drugs. Abuse of prescription drugs to get high has become increasingly common, especially among teens and young adults. Prescription pain killers are now ranked second—only behind marijuana—as the nation’s most prevalent illegal drug problem.

 

To help law enforcement agencies conduct prescription fraud investigations in less time using fewer resources, the Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection (DCP) Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP) has developed the Connecticut Prescription Monitoring and Reporting System (CPMRS).

 

For prescription fraud investigations, CPMRS:

  • Reduces some of the physical legwork involved in an investigation.
  • Exposes potential doctor/pharmacy shopping and other fraudulent behaviors.
  • Provides automated patient controlled-substance history reports online 24/7.
  • Offers ability to request a prescriber’s controlled substance prescribing history report online 24/7.
  • Enables law enforcement to detect suspicious activity quicker.
  • Saves investigative hours, transportation and other departmental resource costs.
  • Allows law enforcement to post alerts on possible suspects.
 
For more information on how to register for a free CPMRS account, please contact the Prescription Monitoring Program at 860.713.6073 or email us at DCP.Prescriptions@ct.gov.
