Veterans Opioid Abuse Prevention Act
(Sec. 2) This bill permits any Department of Veterans Affairs licensed health care provider or provider delegate accessing data on behalf of such provider to query and receive data from the national network of state-based prescription drug monitoring programs to support the safe and effective prescribing of controlled substances to patients who: (1) receive a prescription for a controlled substance, and (2) are not receiving palliative care or enrolled in hospice care.
Health care providers or delegates shall query the network in accordance with applicable Veterans Health Administration regulations and policies. No state may restrict providers or delegates from accessing the state's prescription drug monitoring program.
No state shall deny or revoke the license, registration, or certification of a licensed provider or delegate on the basis that such provider or delegate has queried or received network data.
