Expired Proof of Identification (4/1/2021)

I have a patient who comes in to pick up their controlled substance and the driver’s license is expired.  Can the prescription medication be released?

Because a controlled substance prescription requires a valid government-issued identification, it is important for pharmacies to be aware the WV Division of Motor Vehicles will NOT extend the expiration date of any driver’s license or instructional permit beyond March 31, 2021.  These are now considered to be expired and should be handled as they would have been Pre-COVID.
