Information on Controlled Substances/MAPS
The State of Michigan requires that all pharmacies report controlled substances dispensed for you or for your pet(s). This information is input into a database known as MAPS (Michigan Automated Prescription System). This tool is used by prescribers and dispensers for the purpose of ensuring patient safety and investigating fraud and abuse.
We must have your express consent to access this database. Without it, we are unable to dispense controlled substances for your pet. If you do not consent to this, we will attempt to find alternate medication. We can also provide a prescription to be filled at a retail pharmacy of your choice (where they are also legally obligated to report the prescription to the MAPS database).
Please speak to our staff if you have any questions or concerns about this requirement. More information about MAPS is available at michigan.gov/MImapsinfo.
