Home Medical Device Retailer — CDPH-Exemptee
The California HMDR Program* also licenses Exemptees that are required to be on staff (in lieu of a pharmacist) at facilities selling prescription medical devices as described under California and Federal medical device laws.
In order to dispense prescription (Rx) devices from your HMDR facility you must employ either a licensed pharmacist, or a licensed HMDR Exemptee.
An individual may submit an application for an Exemptee license on their own behalf or a licensed HMDR operator may submit an Exemptee license application for a current employee for the purpose of dispensing
prescription medical devices from that particular facility. In either case, the applicant must meet the required knowledge and training mandated by California Health and Safety Code, Division 104, Part 5, Section 111656.4
(a). This law requires one year of work experience in a facility where dangerous drugs and/or dangerous devices are dispensed, evidence of high school graduation or GED equivalent, and evidence that the applicant has
completed a training course that addresses areas of HMDR knowledge and training.
