Rules and Regs. §410-11-.14 According to OCGA version 43-34-25 of the law, the APRN signs its own name on revenues. This type of protocol agreement must be submitted to the Board of Medical Examins within 30 days of signing (with a fee of 150 $US) and a copy must be kept in your practice. If the APRN also prescribes controlled substances, he must not use the DEA number issued to his cooperating doctor, but must have his own DEA number. AED numbers are only distributed for 3 years in a row at a price of $731.

Don`t be persuaded to use your number instead to save money, because it`s against the law!
