Florida Doctor Shopping Laws

Florida Statute section 893.13 prohibits the practice of doctor shopping. Doctor shopping is the practice of visiting multiple doctors for the purpose of obtaining a prescription you are otherwise not entitled to fill. When visiting a doctor for the purpose of filling a prescription for painkillers, every person is required to fill out paperwork declaring that they have not obtained a prescription for the same drug from another doctor in the last 30 days.

Tracking of this information was difficult in Florida until some recent changes in the law that now make it easier for both doctors and law enforcement to obtain this information. A statewide database has been implemented which allows law enforcement to obtain information regarding those who are attempting to beat the system.

Our attorneys regularly defend clients charged with doctor shopping involving:

  • Valium
  • Oxycodone
  • Oxycontin
  • Roxicodone
  • Adderall
  • Ritalin
