What is KASPER?
Kentucky All Schedule Prescription Electronic Reporting (KASPER) is the Commonwealth's prescription monitoring program designed to assist practitioners and pharmacists with patient care. It is also an investigative tool for law enforcement and regulatory agencies. Dentists authorized to administer and prescribe controlled substances in Kentucky must have a KASPER account.
