Illinois Allows Psychologists to Prescribe to Patients

Illinois psychologist license defense lawyerUnder Public Act 098-0668, Illinois amended the Clinical Psychologist Licensing Act to permit licensed psychologists to issue prescriptions to certain adult patients. Under the newer provisions of the law, a psychologist can apply for a prescribing psychologist license after completing advanced education and training in psychopharmacology and supervised clinical training.  Prescribing psychologists are required to enter into a collaborative agreement with an Illinois physician who generally prescribes medications to his or her patients in the course of his or her normal practice. This change is intended to improve access to comprehensive mental health treatment in Illinois.
