DEA prescriber registration fees to increase Oct. 1

Beginning Oct. 1, the Drug Enforcement Administration will increase its registration fee for prescribers from $731 to $888 for a three-year period.

Dentists need a DEA registration if they prescribe controlled substances. The DEA says the registration fee, which has not been increased since 2012, is going up "to recover the costs of its Diversion Control Program."

Dentists who do not want to renew their DEA prescribing registrations should check with their dental plans beforehand, as some require such registrations during the credentialing process.
