Physician-Only Dispensing

Many stakeholders have noted that it is virtually unheard of for physicians to have to dispense drugs, noting that the physician-only dispensing requirement makes Mifegymiso more heavily regulated than medications in the Controlled Substances Act, and would subject individuals to onerous and demeaning requirements including taking the first of the two medications in Mifegymiso on-site in front of a physician. Due to a lack of precedent or existing infrastructure to do so, it is unlikely that physicians will stock the drug, particularly if they are located in rural areas.
