8. Check the Illinois Prescription Monitoring Program (https://www.ilpmp.org/) to verify the patient has not been certified for the Opioid Alternative Pilot Program or the Medical Cannabis Patient Program by another health care provider. Select from the dropdown box if the patient has been prescribed an opioid prescription. In the second dropdown box select if the type of pain is chronic or acute.  Select one or more medical diagnosis for which an opioid has been prescribed. Note: Once a certification is revoked, the patient’s current Opioid Alternative Pilot Program application will be revoked.

12. Click Save at the bottom of the page. The certification list appears where the health care provider can gain access to patient certification records. Note: The patient will sign into their application and be able to add the health care provider certification to their application. If the certification is not used for a Patient Registration application, health care provider certifications will be automatically set to expire after 30 days. In that situation, no manual action is required.
