Instructions for Obtaining Connecticut Medical, Connecticut DEA & Federal DEA Licenses and subscribing to the Connecticut Prescription Monitoring and Reporting System (CPMRS)

Connecticut Medical License

At least six months prior to your start date, you must go on-line @ to review the requirements and complete the application to obtain your Connecticut Medical License. The State of Connecticut does not accept paper applications. If you have questions, please call the State at 1-860-509-7603.

Connecticut Controlled Substance License

Federal DEA License

A Federal DEA license is required indicating a Connecticut address; therefore, transferring your current DEA license may not be a feasible option. Our insurance carriers require a photocopy indicating a Connecticut address before they will accept your applications, so transferring your current Federal DEA will not afford us enough time to have you fully credentialed with our insurance carriers. Also, transferring your current DEA to a Connecticut address won’t allow you to prescribe in your current State, so you will need to apply for a new Federal DEA. It is important to note that you can have more than one Federal DEA license in effect at the same time. Please obtain by going on-line @ Questions should be directed to 1-800-882-9539.
