 FILE NO.  18-001

Authority of Advanced  Practice
Clinicians to Dispense Mifepristone

The Honorable  Heather Steans
Chair, Special Committee  on Oversight of
  Medicaid  Managed  Care
State Senator, 7th District
5533 North  Broadway
Chicago, Illinois 60640

Dear Senator Steans:

                 ave yo etter   in  iring whet er in light  recent statutory amendments,

physician  ss stants (PAs)     vanc           registered nurses (APRNs)' (collectively referred

to as advanc    r        i   ians (APCs)), may continue to dispense and administer mifepristone

under the supervision of a physician. For the reasons stated below, it is my opinion that the

recent statutory amendments do not impact the authority of APCs to dispense and administer

mifepristone under the supervision of a physician.

               'Illinois' advanced practice registered nurses were formerly known as advanced practice nurses
(APNs). Public Act 100-513, effective January 1, 2018, changed the terminology. This opinion will use the current
terminology-advanced practice registered nurse (APRN).
