ADA urges DEA to 'reconsider' proposed fee hike
from American Dental Association
The American Dental Association has urged the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration to recalculate a proposed fee increase as imposing "an unfair burden" on dentists prescribing controlled substances. Fees for three-year registrants would increase by $180 to $732 under the proposal. The ADA "understands the statutory requirement" for a fee structure sufficient to cover diversion control costs, but the DEA proposal "fails to recognize the inequality of these calculations when considering the relative magnitudes of annual revenue and income for the different registrant classes," said the ADA comments on the proposal.
