KASPER System Updated
Click here for instructions and up-to-date screenshots on the new system.
Per KRS 218A.202(2), all pharmacists authorized to dispense controlled substances must register and maintain a KASPER (Kentucky All Schedule Prescription Electronic Reporting) account.
The exemption for not obtaining a KASPER account is if the place of employment does not have a DEA registration. Examples would include a pharmacist employed at a non-dispensing pharmacy; working as a consultant pharmacist; employed in industry, academia, or government; or not currently employed as a pharmacist. If the pharmacy has a DEA registration, including hospital and long-term care pharmacies, the pharmacist must obtain and maintain a KASPER account.
A Kentucky licensed pharmacist employed by an out of state pharmacy that has a DEA registration, including hospital and long-term care pharmacies, or those that have access via an integrated system must register and maintain a KASPER account with the Cabinet.
Additional information can be found here.
If a pharmacist has not logged onto KASPER and transitioned to the Cabinet’s new secure portal (KOG) since April 2019, their account has been inactivated and they need to reapply.
To obtain a new KASPER account follow these steps:
Step1: Create a KOG account - KOG Help Desk (502)564-0104, ext. 2:
