    The DEA has made new allowances as it pertains to the need to obtain separate DEA licenses for satellite hospitals or clinics as a result of the Coronavirus Disease 2019 and will be in effect starting April 10, 2020, until the public health emergency declared by the Secretary ends, unless DEA specifies an earlier date.

    1. The DEA will allow a DEA-registered hospital/clinic, under its existing DEA registration, to handle controlled substances at a satellite hospital/clinic location under their current registrations. (Seven requirements stipulated in DEA memo)


    1. DEA is providing flexibility to allow distributors to ship controlled substances directly to these satellite hospitals/clinics. (Five requirements stipulated in DEA memo)


    The DEA also recognizes there will be cases where hospitals will be in situations where hospital patients are being cared for in a satellite hospital/clinic that is not a corporate affiliate of, or owned by, the entity that holds the DEA registration of hospital/clinic. The DEA provides instruction on a possible solution of entering into a written agreement that creates an agency relationship with the satellite hospital/clinic.
